XSSed.com: What, Who, Why?

The goals of XSSed.com are to provide informative resources on cross-site scripting(XSS) vulnerabilities and exploitation methodologies, and to archive XSS vulnerable websites for statistic purposes. Mirroring websites is a way to prove to vendors and webmasters that the vulnerability really existed – in case of denial. Users will become more aware on protecting themselves on some websites, as XSS vulnerabilities are mostly targeting the users and not the websites.

XSSed.com is also an attempt to spread education and awareness about XSS to IT professionals and amateurs involved or interested in secure web application development.
