Vulnerability:  
----------------------------------------------  
I found a bug in the search-engine of Webcrawler("http://webcrawler.com").  
It is vulnerable for cross site scripting.  
  
Sending a malicious code will result a code working on the page that pops up...  
  
http://msxml.webcrawler.com/info.wbcrwl/search/web/[XSS CODE HERE]  
  
This can be exploited to execute arbitrary HTML and script code in a user's browser session in context of an affected site.  
  
Example:  
----------------------------------------------  
/info.wbcrwl/search/web/<script>alert("MajorSecurity")</script>
