Twitter Bots Create Surprising New Social Connections. You might have encountered a “Twitter bot” before: an automated program that perhaps retweeted something you wrote because it had particular keywords.

XSS that are protected by CSRF protection or where other mitigating factors are present are usually considered to be unexploitable or of limited exploitability.
This post details real world examples of exploiting “unexploitable” XSS in Google and Twitter. While the XSS detailed in this post are site specific the methods that were used to exploit them could be applied to other websites with similar implementations. Alex’s (kuza55) Exploiting CSRF Protected XSS served as inspiration for this post. Google. Hacked Gadgets - DIY Tech Blog. Protect The Business - Enable Access.

The map of the Internet Like any other map, The Internet map is a scheme displaying objects’ relative position; but unlike real maps (e.g. the map of the Earth) or virtual maps (e.g. the map of Mordor), the objects shown on it are not aligned on a surface.
Mathematically speaking, The Internet map is a bi-dimensional presentation of links between websites on the Internet. Every site is a circle on the map, and its size is determined by website traffic, the larger the amount of traffic, the bigger the circle. Users’ switching between websites forms links, and the stronger the link, the closer the websites tend to arrange themselves to each other.
