#Instructions Just drop into your modules folder or use the box-cli to install

box install cbantisamy


The module registers the following mapping in WireBox: [email protected] that you can use to clean input a-la-carte intrusions. You can also activate different policies and an auto clean interceptor that will clean incoming variables for you automatically. The main methods to clean input are:

+ clean HTML from XSS scripts using the AntiSamy project. The available policies are antisamy, ebay, myspace, slashdot, custom
+ @HTMLData The html data to clean
+ @policyFile The policy file to use, by default it uses the ebay policy file
+ @resultsObject By default it just returns the cleaned HTML, but if this is true, it will return the actual Java results object.
+ @return HTMl data or an instance of org.owasp.validator.html.CleanResults
any function clean( required HTMLData, string policyFile="ebay", boolean resultsObject=false )


Here are the module settings you can place in your ColdBox.cfc under an antisamy structure

// Antisamy settings
antisamy = {
    // Activate auto request capture cleanups interceptor
    autoClean = false,
    // Default Policy to use, available are: antisamy, ebay, myspace, slashdot and tinymce
    defaultPolicy = "ebay",
    // Custom Policy absolute path, leave empty if not used
    customPolicy = ""

"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. ."
