Description MER-C 2007-12-16 07:33:39 UTC
The current implementation of the IP block list reveals the IP address(es) of users who are autoblocked in breach of [[wikimedia:Privacy policy]]. See for an example query where this problem occurs.

Expected behaviour: list the autoblock id only in the user attribute as in [[Special:Ipblocklist]] (#xxxxxx) for the entries that deal with autoblocks. Example: user="#123".

Actual behaviour: the IP of the autoblocked users is shown in the user attribute instead.

Comment 2 Andrew Garrett 2007-12-16 09:44:38 UTC
Fixed by VasilievVV in r28533.
