New Phishing Technique Works on Multiple Browsers
A British Web developer has revealed a new form of a cross-site scripting, or XSS, attack that facilitates phishing activities.
The attack, demonstrated by the developer on his own site, allows an attacker to execute scripts in the context of another Web site. Testing by eWEEK.com indicates that the attack works on both Internet Explorer on Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (Release Candidate 2) and on the Mozilla Firefox 0.9.1 browser.
