Finally, the https interface is open with a bad certificate and an admin management access. Even if you don't care about secure access, you should at least close down that interface since it's a separate running instance.

This looks like an HTML decoding bug in the email service or the email client. Specifically, § is the HTML encoded version of the section sign (§) and the translation should occur only when the encoding begins with an ampersand and ends with a semicolon. In this case, the software is erroneously replacing &sect with section sign even though &sect is not a valid HTML encoding and should not be translated.
