ALERT! See SecurityAlert-CVE-2012-1004 for important information about this task

The form fields submitted during registration other than those validated as part of the registration process - FirstName, LastName, Login name, wikiname, etc. are not validated.

This is really an enhancement, but is marked urgent.

  • add a validateRegistrationField function to
    • Called with fieldname, fieldvalue
    • Returns sanitized field, or can throw oops.
  • Provide basic validation in if not implemented in the mapper. should call this routine for each field in the query prior to allowing the registration to proceed.
