[VIM] Fwd: Menu Manager Mod for WebAPP - No Input Filtering

Incidentally, I came across the original thread where On was concerned with
this issue, at
http://www.web-app.org/cgi-bin/index.cgi?action=forum&board=security101&op=display&num=8837 .
At the time I was exhausted script-wise and deprived life-wise from
producing which was WebAPP's biggest set of changes and additions
ever done in one version. Since the security team had considered the issue
and dismissed it as not a security problem, I too overlooked it, apparently,
following that thread.

The menu manager was originally "Jack Deth's" addition. Maybe he knows a
little more about this suspected security loophole. On was against adding
it, but his protests came along after the release had already been made. And
then they were dismissed by "Mossad" and then On.

Is there still a valid issue here? If so, anybody care to share it with us
so we can make any necessary patches?
