Prevent cross-site scripting (XSS)

By using the upload document function, an attacker could potentially upload an HTML page to TeamForge that contains active code, such as JavaScript. This active code would then be executed by clients' browsers when they view the page.

To prevent an attack of this sort, you can specify whether or not HTML code is displayed in CollabNet TeamForge. This flag applies to all documents, tracker, task, and forum attachments, and files in the file release system.
  1. Set the SAFE_DOWNLOAD_MODE token according to your requirements. For more information, see SAFE_DOWNLOAD_MODE.
