Watch as this scam listing and 2 others uses an uncorrected XSS Cross Site Scripting Vulnerability and whisks me off to a hacked website. Phishing Fraud and Identity Theft can then occur!
Fraudsters hack a website and create a directory just above it’s public root. They then upload their scripts and images etc. Then plant their sucker bait and wait for a victim to swallow the hook.
I know we have been reporting this kind of phishing fraud for more years than i can count.
In our archives there are several other cross site scripting redirects. Here is one that even authenticated your credentials. And the horny-housewife redirects. There are many more where those came from. This XSS Cross Site Scripting Redirect Scam is really really old.
eBay claimed they fixed this cross site scripting vulnerbility. They fed Ina Steiner of then auctionbytes.com this canned response but apparently the vulnerability was never fixed.
eBay Motors is constantly and proactively monitoring the site to prevent and address possible fraudulent behavior. As part of this monitoring, eBay Motors has identified recent redirect issues and has implemented specific safety measures, including updating our detection systems with a filter to identify this particular behavior. These additional protections should supplement smart shopping habits, including reviewing seller ratings, communicating with sellers and confirming transaction details through My eBay before making a purchase, and never paying for a vehicle via instant cash-transfer methods. eBay Motors also offers free vehicle history reports and a Vehicle Purchase Protection program for transactions that occur on the site, to help ensure the 10 million visitors coming to the site each month interact in a safe, trusted marketplace.
