Subject [jira] Commented: (STR-3191) Sufficently filter HTML tag attribute names and values
Date Wed, 23 Sep 2009 02:06:48 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/struts/browse/STR-3191?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=46823#action_46823
] 

Paul Benedict commented on STR-3191:
------------------------------------

Since the patch now provides filtering, the tags are now a safer alternative to straight JSP.
Perhaps it's not so much of a security fix as it is a security-wise enhancement?
