  • Prevent XSS AngularJS sandbox bypassing injection in Freemarker templates by inserting zero-width whitespace between consecutive open-curly-brackets.

  • Please note, this patch was retracted due to incomplete solution causing template errors when used with certain Freemarker escaping modes. The patch, which addresses this issue, should be used instead.
