I wanted to give credit to p0deje for disclosing this problem to the maintainers through the proper channels. If anyone notices a potential security issue, please report it to us via email at: security AT redmine DOT org.

I want to give credit to the developers. Having been a Trac user where almost nothing happens when you add a ticket to come to this product with great developers eager to fix bugs and add new features constantly is such a difference.

Keep up your really great work people!
