    Usually when one wast to illustrate an XSS vulnerability there are two approaches. The first is to show the client the XSS and assume that they know and understand the impact. The second is to write a fully fledged exploit which takes some form of action on the client's server so that they can see the truly devastating impact. I frequently find that the second of these options is the only possible way to draw attention to the problems of XSS, but I have also grown very tired of having to write these from scratch, setting up cookie loggers etc. This post presents a new piece of software to automatically create such a platform.
