Sorry for the cross-posting, but I guess that's also interesting to Galaxy users...
I've been thinking about input validation too... only a bit more generally, on a server/production basis. Nate, on your production setup (galaxy main), do you use any kind of filter or framework a la modsecurity to prevent security issues on third party tools ? How do you mitigate those security risks ?

I am Russell, a student working with Dr. Victor Jin at the Dept. of Biomedical Informatics, OSU Medical Center. I am developing a Galaxy wrapper for our ChIP-seq peak-calling program BELT (PMID: 21138948), and I have a question about input validation. Does Galaxy filter for malicious field entries (such as XSS attacks) or is this our wrapper’s responsibility (the MACS wrapper appears to not perform any explicit checks)? Thank you for your time.
Sincerely, Russell Bonneville
