    I noticed in a thread today that audio embedding via HTML is enabled on the forum. I don't know to what extent this is enabled (I'd assume that it's a limited subset of HTML and we aren't vulnerable to XSS or similar simply by using this forum), but it is quite irritating to be subjected to an audio clip you can't disable.

    The thread in question is https://www.mu-43.com/f35/computer-major-virus-attack-6726/index2.html#post59389 and the HTML code used was:

    <embed src="http://www.slinkycity.com/audio/sheep.wav" autostart="true" hidden="true" loop="2">
    I hope that you'll consider disabling that kind of embedding. I can't see how it's useful for the forum to allow, and it's open for all sorts of annoying abuse.
