Getting Bored ...

Example #1

Mission Objective

Inject a script to pop up a JavaScript alert() in the below URL

<script>alert("123")</script>

XSS Vector

Example #2

Mission Objective

Inject a script to pop up an alert() in the context of the application.

Note: the application saves your posts so if you sneak in code to execute the alert, this level will be solved every time you reload it. 

Entering a <script> tag on this level will not work
