Vulnerability Analysis:
Take the following link as an example,<attacktest>

We can see that for the page reflected, it contains the following codes.
<a href="/mozilla-central/source/chrome/%253Cattacktest%253E">

If we insert "<body onload=prompt("justqdjing")>" into the URL, the code
can be executed.

The vulnerability can be attacked without user login. My tests were
performed on Firefox (26.0) in Ubuntu (12.04) and IE (9.0.15) in Windows 7.

Cross-site scripting (XSS) is a type of computer security vulnerability
typically found in Web applications. XSS enables attackers to inject
client-side script into Web pages viewed by other users. A cross-site
scripting vulnerability may be used by attackers to bypass access controls
such as the same origin policy. (From Wikipedia)
