Description Peter Gal 2013-06-05 08:38:22 PDT
curl supports various protocols (like: HTTP,...,POP3,IMAP...) and by default all of the are enabled for a single curl handle. Furthermore all of the protocols are allowed during location follow. This could pose a security risk for example: a malicious server responds with a crafted Location header pointing to an imap/../(etc) url and the curl backend will follow it and will give the result for the WebCore.

The curl API allows protocol restriction, so this feature can be easily implemented. As far as I know other backend only support HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, FTPS and FILE protocols.
