not sure if this is the appropriate component, but i chatted w/sfraser who suggested that this might belong to conrad. pls reassign as needed. found using 2002.07.29.05 branch commercial bits on Mac 10.1.5 and 9.1. *not* a problem on linux or win2k. 1. download the file at this link to your machine: http://hopey.mcom.com/tests/security/buffer-overflow/a-value.html (this issue depends on loading the file locally). 2. bring up the file picker to open a file (File > Open File, or cmd+O). 3. select the file you downloaded in step #1 and open it in the browser. 4. click on the link called "link". expected: because the value for the href in this link is bogus, you should get an alert dlg which says that the file cannot be found. actual results: oddly, i get a file listing...which lists the contents of the installation folder (even though the bogus URL is displayed in the URL bar).
nominating (for buffy, at least). still occurs with 2002.08.12.05-1.0 comm branch bits on mac os 9.1. (still waiting for an appropriate os x build to test which is more recent.)
Keywords: nsbeta1 → nsbeta1-
This behavior might have changed recently; please retest.
tested with 2003.05.15.13 comm bits on 10.2.6. no longer get a file listing. i don't get an alert, though, saying that the link is bogus. nothing happens when i click the link now, except for the active link color appearing when clicked. for the most part, this isn't a problem anymore.
