it can be of security concern. Here not only url re-direction is possible

Why would he be concerned?  The problem is that most sites on the
internet suffer from XSS vulenrabilities, its just that nobody cares
because there is nothing to gain from the sites.  Nothing to gain you
say?  Yes.  Let's take this site you posted about for example, I
didn't look over the entire site, but glancing I don't even see
anything which XSS would help you compromise.  The site seemingly is
all static content (minus a search, correct me if I'm wrong) with no
e-mail portal, forums, or anything else that the XSS could be
leveraged to gain access to.  Since the site offeres no direct
services (right?) what exactly could you trick people into doing here?
 The session cookie seems worthless since there's no login or
anything...

but also execution of malicious javascripts is possible.Your Lame reply

Which would be meaningful if:
A) this site were used by millions of people
B) there was something worth compromising the site for (like access to
webmail, personal information, etc...)

I think what I'm missing here is why this particular XSS is useful in
any way shape or form?    Am I missing something significant about
this site?  Do people trust it for something?

makes me think that you are one of the following:
1.An employee of MBT criticising me in the interest of the company   'or'
2.A poor spammer who doesnt know anything but tries to shows-off as if he is
the MASTER. If this is the case carry on with your spamming business and
good luck for your future.

Isn't that what you are doing?
