XSS rocks (although this isn't XSS...)

I'm typing this message from a museum PC. You know the ones that have shitty keyboards and full screen browsers locked into their own pages.

Except I managed to hack it. Using XSS.

What I did:

1. Go to a website without HTML filters on the search engine, using their inbuilt weblinks.

2. Enter

4. Download Firefox to view the blog (default browser was Internet "Explorer" Exposer 6)

People should learn what scripting is lol.

Code injection doesn't get past me ;)

^^

Cheers theguywholikeslinux
