Description Marek Grac 2009-04-27 09:32:49 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #495102 +++

Description of problem: When editing a virtual service, any slash entered in the Send box will be removed when written to the configuration.  The default Send command contains slashes, so simply leaving it as-is and hitting Accept will result in HTTP/1.0rnrn as opposed to HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n.  This in turn results in nanny timing out waiting for the real server to respond, when it never will because it didn't receive the two carriage returns.  

This is caused by the unnecessary stripslashes call in web/web/secure/virtual_edit_services.php:

       $send           = stripslashes($_GET['send']);

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): piranha-0.8.4-11.el5

How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a new virtual server or edit an existing one
2. Go to the Monitoring Scripts tab
3. Enter value (or leave defaults) of "GET / HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n"
4. Hit Accept
Actual results: lvs.cf has 'send = "GET / HTTP/1.0rnrn"'

Expected results: lvs.cf has 'send = "GET / HTTP/1.0\r\n\r\n"'

Additional info: This issue was fixed in RHEL 4 by BZ 199243.

Situation is slightly more complicated. Usage of stripslashes() is not useless when php is configured with 'magic_quotes_gpc = On'. Attached patch should work in both of the situations.

Patch for BZ 199243 does not care about magic_quotes_gpc.
