Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 624375
encoding problem turning valid text and link into garbage
Last modified: 2013-06-23 21:46:35 EDT
Description of problem:
Link at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=601419#c9 is illegible. It should read "http://www.samba.org/samba/security/CVE-2010-2063.html" but it read "http://www.samba.org/samba/security/��0��.html" instead (not sure this will render as expected in this description field).
<adk> can someone please fix the link to samba.org given in https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=601419#c9 looks like there is an encoding problem
<rogerman> adk: can you file BZ bz for that isuse?
<adk> you mean open a bugzilla on the bugzilla component?
<adk> oh, you think it might be related to the upgrade
<mjc> do we know what it used to say?
<rogerman> yup, comment "source" looks ok
<mjc> ah, yes http://www.samba.org/samba/security/CVE-2010-2063.html
<rogerman> comment says:
<rogerman> This is now public:
<rogerman> but it's not rendered correctly
<adk> my rendering of the source is borked too
<adk> <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
* mjc wonders how CVE-2010-2063 turns into ��0��
<adk> Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
<mjc> if I go to 'edit comment' i see the correct link
<rogerman> may be some bug in auto-link-ification of the CVE-XXXX-YYYY pattern
This is obviously affecting other instances of the C V E -XXXX-YYYY pattern as the first, third and fourth instance of the garbled text in the description above are supposed to read C V E -2010-2063.
Looks like other URLs containing CVE gets garbaged too:
The e-mail notifications do not seem affected by the problem.
Sorry for the trouble and thanks for the report. I have committed to changes to address this issue. This should be in the next code update hopefully tomorrow morning.
CVE and issue links seem to be fixed now, though I've came across similar problem in bug #614643, comment #15. SF.net link seems to get merged to following CVE, possibly related to my other bug #624597? Dave, can you have a look? TY!
