Type: Bug


When you try to upload a file the error message "Invalid XML was sent to the server" is returned and the upload fails. If you upload via the component Upload file 2.0 and the option Preserve File Name is set the page crashes entirely.


This error occurs if name of the file you try to upload contains any of the character > < &. This error occurs because the file name is sent as XML to the server and the file name is not XML-encoded.


Rename the file so that none of these 3 characters remains and try to upload the file again.


This error has been fixed in Content Studio 4.0 build 1010. Also the same version improves the error handling in the File upload 2.0 component so that such errors does not crash the entire page.
