What is "Global Domains International - Cross-Site Scripting?"

The "Global Domains International - Cross-Site Scripting" module is designed to detect cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerabilities in websites hosted by Global Domains International, Inc. XSS vulnerabilities can allow attackers to inject malicious scripts into web pages viewed by users, potentially leading to unauthorized access, data theft, or other security breaches. This module focuses on identifying and reporting such vulnerabilities, helping website owners take appropriate measures to mitigate the risk.

This module has a severity level of high, indicating the potential impact of XSS vulnerabilities on the security of the affected websites.

Cross-site scripting vulnerabilities in websites hosted by Global Domains International, Inc. can have serious consequences. Attackers can exploit these vulnerabilities to inject malicious scripts into web pages, which can then be executed by unsuspecting users. The impact of successful XSS attacks can include:

- Data theft: Attackers can steal sensitive user information, such as login credentials, personal data, or financial details. - Unauthorized access: XSS attacks can enable attackers to gain unauthorized access to user accounts or administrative functionalities. - Malware distribution: Attackers can use XSS vulnerabilities to distribute malware or initiate further attacks on users or other systems. - Website defacement: XSS attacks can be used to modify the appearance or content of web pages, potentially damaging the reputation of the affected websites.

How the module works?

The "Global Domains International - Cross-Site Scripting" module works by sending HTTP requests to the target websites and analyzing the responses for specific patterns that indicate the presence of XSS vulnerabilities. The module uses the following matching conditions to identify XSS vulnerabilities:

- Body match: The module searches for the presence of the string </script><script>alert(document.domain)</script> in the response body. This pattern is commonly associated with XSS attacks. - Header match: The module checks if the response header contains the string text/html. This ensures that the response is in HTML format, which is typically required for XSS attacks. - Status match: The module verifies that the HTTP response status code is 200, indicating a successful request. This condition helps filter out false positives.

By combining these matching conditions, the module can accurately identify websites hosted by Global Domains International, Inc. that are vulnerable to XSS attacks.

Here is an example of an HTTP request sent by the module:

GET /index.dhtml?sponsor=%3C%2Fscript%3E%3Cscript%3Ealert(document.domain)%3C%2Fscript%3E HTTP/1.1
Host: [target website]

Note: The actual target website URL will be substituted in place of "[target website]" in the request.

If the module detects a match for all the specified conditions, it will report the vulnerability, allowing website owners to take appropriate actions to address the XSS vulnerabilities.
