Re: [suse-security] Does Rich Text hold the same risks as html ?
And hence should be banned or tightly controlled locations where it can
be read? OR is it a completely other kind of animal, as "safe".. at
least as safe as anything coming thru the system sent by people you
may, or not, know.
I only remember Marc Andreeson ( sp?) Talking a lot about it during the
time Netscape was the scarey company in the wood work for MS. I never
got into the nuts and bolts of it... so I don't know anything about it
except it looks pretty.. but so can HTML properly done. And improperly
done HTML can bring a system down.. if the attacker knows enough to
circumvent rules that prevent it from being displayed...
I would greatly appreciate anyone who feels they have the time to
explain this to me. Pros and cons are both welcome.
