Risk : Cross site scripting
Description: TypePad is a powerful, hosted weblogging service that gives
users the richest set of features to immediately share and publish
information -- like travel logs, journals and digital scrapbooks -- on
the Web. TypePad lets people communicate, publicly or privately, with
the audience of their choosing.
Cross site scripting: The filtering script for the name form doesnt
filter " if preceeded by a ?. The cross site scripting works because the
<a href=" tag can be closed by a target url with " which then permits
the user to use such oneventhandles as onmouseover.
Solution: The easiest way would be to just replace all characters with
their &#xx; equivilant.
Credits: Credits goto my loving fiance, you push me todo things i never
the name variable.
