* pdp:

  1. page that is controlled by the attacker, lets call it evil.com
  2. border router vulnerable to XSS
  3. user attending evil.com

This has nothing to do with cross-site scripting attacks, it's an
entirely different vulnerability class called cross-site request
forgery (CSRF).  A lot of web applications are afffected.

Technically, this is a browser vulnerability, but you can't fix it
there as cross-site requests are too common in the real world.
