Dear followers, i found a reflected Cross Site Scripting issue on the new Paypal Directory service (, with the following Payload:

The vulnerable Parameter was the q? Parameter, i was able to break the script contex of the page, i think it was because of the &q Parameteter, but i am not sure Paypal fixed this issue to fast so i couldn’t analyze it more in depth :/

Here is my POC i sent in to Paypal :  hope you enjoyed! If you have any kind of question please don’t hesitate to ask me, either way here or via email at patrik.fehrenbach(at) All the best Patrik

  1. Interested

  2. I have been working in Security in the UK for 10 years. I have only started to get a bit grumpy about security in general, however after reading this piece it has helped changed my attitude a bit. Time for a project methinks 🙂

  3. I think you could get XSS via „&q=payload“ because of HPP ( HTTP Parameter Pollution) .
    First „q“ parameter value was getting filtered while second „q“ parameter value was being used for generating output 😀
