MOSEB-29: Vulnerability at

19:48 29.06.2007

Next participant of the project is Excite search engine. It is one of the popular meta search engines (in USA).

The vulnerability is at Excite Money & Investing ( in symbol search results. This Cross-Site Scripting hole I found 31.05.2007. And I used null byte filters bypass technique for Mozilla and slash filters bypass technique for Internet Explorer.


The vulnerability is in symbol_search_text parameter:

Also page with html injection hole has PR7. It is a dream and black seo guys will be happy :-) .

Moral: searching for money can be dangerous.

Note, that Excite engine belongs to IAC Search & Media. So also responsible for this vulnerability.


Also I prepared others holes concerned with Excite. So wait for today’s bonus post ;-) .
