#14169 closed defect (bug) (wontfix)

Slashes not removed when $_SERVER in process_conditionals()

Focuses: Cc:


Since [1964] (now after [12732] in wp-includes/load.php) slashes are added to all values of $_SERVER. If then $_SERVER is accessed, slashes must be removed again otherwise things might not work as intended, e.g. comparing and parsing strings.

function process_conditionals() might be dead code.

My previous comment about dead code is invalid. Instead there are additional locations where the problem occurs.

AtomServer::process_conditionals() [wp-includes/wp-app.php]
WP::send_headers() [wp-includes/classes.php]

Additional it's noteworthy that removing and especially adding slashes does not add anything useful when magic_quotes_sybase is ON.

  • Keywords has-patch commit added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release

Technically, both patches look correct to me, However, it should never be a problem as a datestamp such as that field should never contain punctuation.
