Store XSS on Main page of Flickr.com and Mobile Inteface

Flickr is an image hosting and video hosting website, and web services suite that was created by Ludicorp in 2004 and acquired by Yahoo in 2005. 

Flickr had a total of 87 million registered members and more than 3.5 million new images uploaded daily.In August 2011 the site reported that it was hosting more than 6 billion images and this number continues to grow steadily according to reporting sources.

I start doing my security research on flickr.com and I found some cool bugs but this XSS was my favorite because the XSS was showing on Flickr main page and on the Mobile interface at m.flickr.com.

Affecting millions of users for sure..



This attack works by inviting the Victim to a group. The XSS  loads when the victim get notify about a group invitation. Making this XSS very dangerous and perfect to target specific people or people in general.




I report this two bugs to Yahoo Security team and I got two nice reward.

Thanks Yahoo security Team!

Bypass Flash Same Origin Policy with Add-On

The same-origin policy is an important concept in the web application security model. The policy permits scripts running on pages originating from the same site.

I found that users using FlashFirebug  are vulnerable to same-origin policy bypass. This Firefox add-ons create a files on the Flash Player Trust directory disallowing same-origin policy.


For this example I will use Facebook Video preview box to trigger this Flash XSS. (Fortunately Faceboook use attachment.fbsbx.com )


By using a Flash XSS plus having FlashFirebug install on the Victim Firefox I can trigger this XSS and bypass Same Origin Policy



I report this to Facebook and this was the response:




And me as a good bounty hunter I report to Adobe:




After doing a bit of looking I found that o-minds.com have a report bug page and here is their response:



 I reply to them and after that I didn't receive a response.


My conclusion:
External Addons can bypass Flash "Same Origin Policy" by adding a files to flash tr…
