Component:  General   |     Version:  2.5                                                      
 Severity:  normal    |    Keywords:  update_user_option get_user_option has-patch sanitization
 {{{update_user_option}}} sanitizes the option name, because it sends the
 option to {{{update_usermeta}}} which does the sanitizing.  However,
 {{{get_user_option}}} doesn't sanitize the option name before checking
 whether the option is among the userdata.  So, if your option name has
 non-kosher characters, you'll never be able to retrieve it using

 The attached patch sanitizes the option in {{{get_user_option}}}.
