> During the last couple of days I have been testing several attack
> vectors to circumvent the browser security sandbox also known as the
> same origin policy. There is a lot involved into this subject and I
> will present my notes very soon.
> The JavaScript Spider is the first implementation of a proof of
> concept tool which shows that Javascript can be in fact quite
> dangerous. This implementation depends on proxydrop.com but other
> proxies are possible as well: Google Translate is one of them. Keep in
> mind that the tool spiders only the first level.
> The tool is located here:
> http://www.gnucitizen.org/projects/javascript-spider/launch.htm
> As you can see publicly available anonymizing proxies can be used to
> fetch remote pages. This technique will work quite successfully on
> Internet resources but not on Intranet. The reason for this is quite
> obvious.
> Suggestions and comments are greatly appreciated.
