The Intercept published a top-secret NSA report detailing Russia’s role in 2016 U.S. election hacking. Their source, Reality Winner, was reportedly arrested within one hour of sending the top secret document. Here’s how authorities tracked her down.
Password Reset link hijacking via Host Header Poisoning [19 upvotes] - no bounty for this report to concrete5 by @cdl. Known issue, resolved by entering a Canonical URL. But cool to see statements like this from security team’s: “It’s a different vector, but resolved by the same solution. Figured we could give you some rep since it was a nice find.”
Flash XSS on Buick_RotatingMasthead_JellyBeanSlider.swf [4 upvotes] - no bounty for this report to General Motors by @mystech7. Buick.com website contained a parameter that allowed XSS injection.
