AOL keywords, cheap domains, KeywordDiscovery new features

Will you people quit fawning over the AOL keywords? I’ve seen about half a dozen websites about it, dozens of rants about some guy that needs to be arrested because he is searching for ways to kill his wife, and some hundreds of people posting meaningless stuff about it.

Just build a bunch of sites with the keywords and forget.

XSS – Cross Site Scripting

Here is some useful info and links I found on (XSS) Cross Site Scripting.

Cross-Site Scripting is a class of security vulnerabilities in web applications. The name does not convey its meaning very well but it has stuck since it was first used. The acronym was changed to XSS, probably by Steve Champeon in his Webmonkey article, because there’s also Cascading Style Sheets and Content Scrambling System. The name sounds like something harmless, thus many web developers ignore the fact that XSS can do as much damage as any other hack, crack or exploit.

The XSS cheat sheet by xss-god Rsnake has a lot of practical information. Also read the ha.ckers.org blog and browse around for heaps of interesting stuff. I particularly liked the Firefox extension(can’t find the link) and text obfuscation. (obvious SEO applications)
