Cross Site scripting for BreakOut !! – Or for Testing ?

Stealing idea from David Christiansen’s Blog

If you find yourself ( or Tester 😉 ) typing asdf over and over again as you test data entry on
a web-app, do this instead:

<script>alert("f")</script>

Paste it in every field.

If an alert pops up OR the field gets saved and then gets rendered without the
script tags, you’ve found a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

The minute you find one, your brain will power up and you’ll find more energy for testing that data input.
