Clinton penetrates Obama’s portal

A security weakness in Barack Obama’s website has been exploited to redirect visitors to Hillary Clinton’s website. Visitors who viewed the Community Blogs section of the site were instead presented with Clinton’s website as a result of a cross-site scripting vulnerability.

A YouTube clip shows a user clicking on the Community Blogs section of the Barack Obama site, which subsequently causes the browser to redirect to hillaryclinton.com.

Perhaps both democrat candidates should have a word with Al Gore to settle the in-fighting. After all, he did invent the internet.
