Sharing is Caring :)
When we share, we open doors to a new beginning…../

Well, This is Shahzada Al Shahriar Khan. And I am from Bangladesh.
Now I am going to share how I found Stored Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) in Yahoo.

Steps to Reproduce:

Go to

Comment this payload: "><img src=x onerror=confirm(1);>

Now what? Voila! We get the famous confirm(1) to popup! :D

I am trying another payload that I can write something in popup box, and found this payload: <img src=x onerror=prompt(1337)>
That moment I feel like a boss!

Here is the video PoC:
