[PATCH 10/15] report: encode xml entities in property values

[Date Prev] [Date Next] [Thread Prev] [Thread Next] [Date Index] [Thread Index]

From: Darrick J. Wong <djwong@xxxxxxxxxx>

Avoid trouble with the properties reported in the xml reports by
translating xml-tricky characters in the property values into their xml
entity equivalents.

IOWs, if someone sets a property "NAME" to the value 'BOBBY"; DROP TABLES;',
the xml will be formatted:

	<property name="NAME" value="BOBBY&quot;; DROP TABLES;"/>

Thus avoiding XML problems.
