It has been discovered that the file `ssfeedgenerator.aspx` is not validating the input parameters and hence is
to remote xss attacks. Since no validation is being performed, it is possible to include remote xml files to be parsed
displayed on the main microsoft website. A remote attacker can include malicious xml files via URLS variable which can
to remote java-script execution on the client machine within the context of microsoft.com website.
The vulnerability is located in the
file and the vulnerable parameter is
which can be exploited
via GET method to include remote (external) xml files.
Exploitation of the vulnerability requires no privilege application user account but low or medium user interaction.
Successful exploitation of the vulnerability results in session hijacking, non persistent phishing, non persistent
injects, external redirects and manipulation of affected module or application context.

Proof of Concept:
The client side web vulnerability can be exploited by remote attackers without privilege application user account and
with low user interaction.
