I note that with the release of Google Web Toolkit (GWT) 2.5.1, a security flaw has been resolved: ("Security Fixes") The release notes state: Fixed an XSS vulnerability in html files used by GWTTestCase (patch). These files will only be included in a GWT app if it depends on the JUnit module. Despite the fix, this is not recommended. The patch is here: I have reproduced this flaw and can confirm it is reflected XSS. I have previously contacted security () google asking for CVE IDs for GWT flaws, but never received a response. Please assign a CVE ID to this flaw.
