By exploiting vulnerabilities in the web server, an attacker uses the website as an intermediary for transferring malicious code to another victim. In this attack, the victim is usually not aware of being exploited because he or she assumes the data received are from a valid Web server. One example of malicious action is for the attack code to copy cookies from the victim’s computer and relay them to the attacker.

A basic example of XSS is when a malicious user injects a script in a legitimate shopping site URL which in turn redirects a user to a fake but identical page. The malicious page would run a script to capture the cookie of the user browsing the shopping site, and that cookie gets sent to the malicious user who can now hijack the legitimate user’s session.

Then what is the difference between the XXX and Phishing ?
