Guidelines for iFrame Busters

The following are common XSS vulnerabilities found in iFrame busters.

  1. Unescaped URL parameter values
  2. Parameters that accept any domain

Unescaped URL parameter values

Special characters should be removed or converted into their equivalent HTML/hex entity. The characters in the following table can be used to write malicious code on the page.

example.com/iframebuster.html?parameter="></script><script>alert('XSS')</script>

Character => HTML Entity
    &     =>    &amp;   
    <     =>    &lt;    
    >     =>    &gt;    
    "     =>    &quot;  
    '     =>    &#x27;  
    /     =>    &#x2F;  

Parameters that accept any domain

When passing a domain as a parameter to write a script tag onto the page, it should be restricted to an approved domain(s).

example.com/iframebuster.html?server=evildomain.com
