Cross site scripting and your home router.

, posted: 20-Feb-2007 16:54

ever been annoyed by AJAX refusing to work cross domain? ever been shocked by adobe flash working cross domain? here's another angle to it -- use of cross site scripting to make your browser, in the background, hit your home lan's router/cable modem / dsl router... then hit the right urls to add a DNS entry in popuplar router config software so, now kiwibank.co.nz goes a completely different IP, but looks the same...
