I took at very quick look at bpo30500 and was struck by the comment that the code was working on a URL that had not been validated.
Validation of the URL would reject the URL before the parsing happens in this case. Was that the case?
Sorry, can you elaborate on that? How do you validate a URL without attempting to parse it? You're surely not talking about looking it up in a whitelist are you?
