Prat 3.0

573 - SetItemRef taint

Aside other possible taint problem (if any), this one is quite obvious and you probably want to fix it.

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Disable all addons but Prat-3.0 and Prat-3.0_Libraries
2. Enter game
3. /run print(issecurevariable("SetItemRef")) => nil Prat-3.0_Libraries

See the Notes part: Do not insecurely hook this function to add your own link types; hook ChatFrame_OnHyperlinkShow(frame, link, text, button) instead. Hooking this function insecurely will end up tainting Blizzard's combat log, which will taint UIParent's update routines and result in "action has been blocked" messages.
You may want to secure hook it or hook the other function.
