It only affects extensions that render rich text in the old style format used in phpBB 3.1.x and earlier. In phpBB 3.2.x the content is saved in the database as XML. When calling
with XML content, the bugged code is not called. So this only affects extensions written before 3.2.x that haven't migrated to the new XML format yet. For example, mChat 2.1.x uses the new XML format exclusively and therefore is not affected, while mChat 2.0.x is.
Thanks for this additional information.
On the boards I'm involved with I've scanned for calls to
and so far only the Board Rules
extension makes this call. Rather than dig further into the code and database, I've asked the extension developers if the extension is affected or not. Since there is a 3.2.x and 3.1.x version of the extension I'm guessing not but I'd rather have the developers confirm to be sure.
