Linking security issue/Private topics surface

Reported by: caming's profile caming Owned by:
Milestone: 2.4 Priority: high
Severity: major Version: 2.1
Component: Component - Search Keywords:


Upgraded to 2.3, and when a casual user chooses to hyperlink and opts to “Use Existing Content” and performs a search, all topic subjects posted in a Private forum (in this case, our moderator forum) are presented.

From JJJ: Sigh. No; first I’ve heard of it, and totally lame that’s happening.

I actually discovered this a month ago and posted about it in the (now removed, I beleive) Staff forums on No one really read that and I just kinda forgot about it, sorry about that.

At the time I believe I was able to replicate this, so it's certainly something we want to look into and get fixed as quick as possible.

Thanks for reporting.

In 5006:

Make sure that topics and replies in private/hidden forums are excluded from the "insert links" dialogue window. Hat tip jaredatch. See #2334.
