Secure two webapp vulnerabilities.

Firstly, improve sanitization of HTML content for job generated files.

  • Sanitize sub-directory files.
  • Sanitize filenames in HTML index pages.
  • Don't pre-read content if not going to sanitize - just hand off to web server.

This exploit was reported by Eric Rasche (@erasche).

Secondly, prevent URL redirection hijacking if certain query parameters happen to contain newlines or carriage returns.

This issue was reported by Manabu Ishii (@manabuishii).
