26 Jul, 2006

SillyDog701 noticed the new Netscape.com site was being hijacked if a user clicks any Hot Tags. The user will be greeted with a message "Tom Way is the sexiest man alive" twice, then redirected to Digg.com. For more detail, please refer to this thread with screenshots.

Digg.com is the website where Netscape.com is based on. Netscape.com launched the news-discussion blogging styled site on 29 June, replacing portal sites with news from CNN and Time Warner sources.

Updated: SillyDog701's security expert Juha-Matti Laurio told us it was hacked with XSS vulnerability. (detail)
