Details:  
========  
Multiple client side cross site scripting vulnerabilities are detected on Microsofts Afkar Service Website.  
The vulnerability allows an attacker (remote) to hijack customer/moderator/admin sessions with medium required user inter   
action. Successful exploitation can result in account steal or client side context manipulation when processing affected module  
application requests.  
  
Vulnerable Module(s):   
[+] autocompleterservice  
[+] transliterateservice  
[+] getprayers  
  
  
Proof of Concept:  
=================  
The vulnerabilities cna be exploited by remote attacker with medium required user inter aciton. For demonstration or reproduce ...
