Description

3 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:24.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/24.0
Build ID: 20140604025224

Steps to reproduce:

Change the real name field in your account preferences to an email address, such as president@whitehouse.gov.


Actual results:

View any bugs assigned to your account.  These bugs now appear to be from the email address suggested above.  This behavior allows users to impersonate another account, at least visually.


Expected results:

The real name field should be limited on the characters allowed within it.  In some cases, this limitation may not be desirable.  Instead, potentially control this behavior with additional administrator settings.
