Description brevam 2005-12-04 09:51:45 UTC
Not untainted uselang parameter is passed to eval(), in 
setupLangObj function in Setup.php.
This causes server-/client-side serious security problem.

This shows 'test'.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-12-04 11:39:38 UTC
Fixed on CVS HEAD and REL1_5, in 1.5.3 release. Bug was introduced in May 2005, bad regexp replacing a 
good one.

(Since our bugzilla is public, consider reporting serious security issues by private e-mail. We'll get 
a fix out as fast as we can, but if you posted at a bad time of day it might be sitting in public for 
hours before it's read by us.)
