Freelancer.com Stored XSS

On the 8th of August 2013, I reported a persistent cross site scripting vulnerability on freelancer.com
The bug is located in the picture upload function of the site. Attackers can basically create an image file with the attacking vectors. For eg, renaming a normal png file to <img src=”” onerror=”javascript:alert(1)”>.png and just uploading it to the site. The site will echo out the name of the image, thus javascript will be executed.

The bug was fixed on 27/08/2013
