Backfire (10.03.1-rc2, r22711) wireless scan: improper LuCI XML escape for SSIDs

Reported by:… Owned by: jow
Priority: normal Milestone: Backfire 10.03.1
Component: luci Version: Backfire 10.03.1 RC2
Keywords: umlaut ssid wlan scan xml escape Cc:


In output of wireless SCAN, SSIDs are not properly XML escaped. When scanning here in my region, I get following error:

XML-Verarbeitungsfehler: nicht wohlgeformt
Zeile Nr. 638, Spalte 5:

Somebody else here uses a native character (Umlaut-A) in the SSID shown. I think it makes it somehow into the XML without a proper translate and breaks it.

Using German Firefox version 3.6.9 and openwrt-wrt54g-squashfs.bin from the RC3 package (it pretends still to be RC2) on WRT54GL.

HTH, as this is all data I have.

Indeed, guess we can only replace such chars to "?", trying to detect the local encoding is pointless.

Recent LuCI does more thorough UTF-8 validation and XML escaping, if you still be able to reproduce it, please reopen. I believe it is fixed in RC5
