I've made a few bug fixes and a small enhancement to the email notification code for new questions and comments, which I hope are useful to people.
Mainly this was to fix the irritation of characters such as quotes or ampersands showing up as html entities in the sent emails, but I've also improved the way special characters are handled in from, to, reply-to, etc headers in emails (and fixed a vulnerability) which I discovered during testing. I've also made the email subject lines distinct for comments and questions to make them more useful.
I made the changes against the 2.6 branch, as only my production install can send emails.
I'm new to both GitHub and git (but not version control generally), so my apologies if I've got this all wrong - please do point out the way I should have done things!
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
… entities in the plain-text emails.
…t names in sent emails, and prevent email header injection attacks using the Ask a question username field when mb_encode_mimeheader is not available.
