Incoming webhook - problems with "&" character


I’m using your incoming webhook script:

It works fine as long as there’s no “&” in the message. If the message contains a “&” the whole message is empty.

Here’s the log output for the test message “TestA & TestB”
{ payload: ‘{“text”:“TestA ', ’ TestB”,“channel”:"@horstepipe",“username”:“bot”,“icon_emoji”:":bot"}’: ‘’ }

Anybody got a clue how to fix that?

Best regards
