EXAMPLE Let‟s assume that a web application has a parameter emailAddress, dictated by the user. The application prints the value of this variable by using the printf function: printf(emailAddress); If the value sent to the emailAddress parameter contains conversion characters, printf will parse the conversion characters and use the additionally supplied corresponding arguments.

For example, an HTML page can have JavaScript code that embeds the location/URL of the page into the page. This URL may be partly controlled by the attacker. In such case, an attacker can force the client (browser) to render the page with parts of the DOM (the location and/or the referrer) controlled by the attacker. When the page is rendered and the data is processed by the page (typically by a client side HTML-embedded script such as JavaScript), the page‟s code may insecurely embed the data in the page itself, thus delivering the cross-site scripting payload.
