Mystery light on Mars Apr 3, 2014 - a 'vent-hole light leak'?

Thanks MegaVinny73 for linking this in the comments!

This is already making the rounds big-time but first WFR has heard of it so take a look!

Very bright object appears in a Mars rover image from Apr 3, 2014. The overall exposure is very dark compared to the average rover image so the light really stands out. A Fox article linked below quotes a NASA rep as saying this is likely either a vent-hole leak on the right navcam or a "glinty rock". Well ok, I'll buy it but haven't seen anything quite like it in other images.

Here's the article:

What is that? Debunk away, debunkers : )
