I think as long enough time passed and I hope distributors maybe need
to see it - I publish exploit. Sorry, this was discovered
independently and for me it looks like very serious problem.
I very much doubt there are many applications at all containing code
like this. It is illogical to be decoding html entities from user
input. Therefore I would not call this a "very serious problem" and
certainly not a critical bug.
Not really. While this is not part of the HTML / HTTP standards, major
around try to send such characters in the user input as HTML entities
all be represented in the encoding of the originating HTML page, it's
the function is used to filter the query strings.
