TLDR

Envato devs didn’t develop a strong firewall to avoid any XSS Attack, I noticed that I could perform a XSS Injection. I have contacted Envato and after some investigations, they have discovered that my vulnerabilities were critical! They fixed them within 5 business day. Good Job Envato Team!

How everything started

First of all, I am an Envato Author, I have been selling my items since August. Envato has at the moment over 1 million customers and a 41 million products sold. I am a web developer and a security researcher. I think security must be a priority for a company like Envato.
