  De-Anonymizer (SCRIPT Bypassing)


A technique allowing the bypassing of Anonymizer's SCRIPT filtering
mechanism has been found. The technique would allow a malicious attackers
to insert hostile JavaScript into their web pages and cause visiting users
(even if they visit through Anonymizer) to execute it.


The new technique utilizes a <SCR!PT> (NOTE: The letter I has been
replaced with !) tag without a closing </SCRIPT> tag to fool Anonymizer
into allowing an onError event to pass filters. This allows an attacker to
execute JavaScript with obvious security breaches.
