                                            `As many of you have heard, the MPAA themselves are violating the GNU  
GPL. Such hypocrisy from a company which claims they adhere to  
copyrights :-) In protest, I took exactly 7 seconds to locate an XSS  
in their website and am posting it for your perusal. Maybe someone  
can use it in an email to an MPAA staff member, and perhaps can modify  
the payload to steal credentials for some MPAA admin interface. And  
perhaps then, after gaining MPAA credentials, this person can modify  
the MPAA website. And perhaps after that, we can all laugh at the  
MPAA yet again in their quest to sue 12 year old kids for downloading  
MP3 files...  
  
There are many more XSS on their site. Everyone knows that if you  
find one bug on top (without much effort), there are many more  
security issues hiding beneath the surface. I leave it up to the  
MPPA-haters out there to dig deeper and use it to "influence" the MPAA  
website...  
  
Here's one for the 'txtsearch' search field on the main page at  
MPAA.org in the top right-hand corner where it says 'Find the rating  
of a film'...
