paste security issue
Submitted by Elad Alfassa
Testcase here: http://thejh.net/misc/website-terminal-copy-paste
The title explains the issue pretty well. Even a normal, innocent looking command can hide dangerous code.
<elad> did anyone file a bug for VTE/gnome-terminal to fix this problem? http://thejh.net/misc/website-terminal-copy-paste
<chpe> elad: not filed
<chpe> vte supports bracketed paste (by the application running inside the terminal, but not from API); it's not used by g-t when pasting
<elad> chpe: I'll go file a bug then
<chpe> elad: does bash even turn on bracketed paste mode?
<elad> I don't know
<elad> how can I check it?
Can this be fixed by a change in gnome-terminal, or should a bug be filed in each and every of the available shells?
