Abstract

Cross-site scripting attacks has always been one of the most common attacks to the front-end network applications. With the popularity of HTML5, the security of Email systems is facing new challenges. In this paper, we propose a new approach which utilizes HTML5 new tags and new attributes to construct storage-type XSS attack vectors. Based on this method, we have tested several domestic and foreign common mailbox and detected six HTML5-based XSS vulnerabilities. The final evaluation results show that our method can detect storage-type XSS vulnerabilities based on HTML5 effectively.
