NineMSN Flights XSS Vulnerability

10 Nov 2012

After browsing around on the NineMSN website for a little while (for about 10 minutes) I found a XSS vulnerability on a very common page. The NineMSN flights page is located here:
http://flights.ninemsn.com.au/

The page did not sanitise input from the depart and return input. The form was expecting a date but any string could be provided as input to execute an XSS attack.

Here is the vulnerability:

This vulnerability has been reported and I have been added to the Microsoft Hall of Fame for October 2012.

Why not have a look around Microsoft’s websites and see if you can find one too.

iiNet.net.au XSS Vulnerabilities

06 Oct 2012

iiNet, a major ISP in Australia seems to be a little less secure than they claim they are. After merely searching for XSS vulnerabilities on their website for 5 minutes, I had found these two vulnerabilities. Two non-persistent vulnerabilities, one surprisingly located in iiNet’s main search page.

Here is the main search page vulnerability:

This is another vulnerability on the iiNet Freezone main page:

I have reported the above vulnerabilities to iiNet and have gotten no response. Hopefully they will fix the vulnerabilities in the near future.
