IE Referer XSS Proof-of-Concept Generator & Demo

XSS vulnerability in HTTP header location such as Referer was largely ignored as non-exploitable attack vector after browser plugins' (such as Flash) capability of sending arbitrary HTTP Request header had been restricted. 

In this Proof-of-Concept, we did not use any browser plugins to accomplish the Referer Header XSS against Microsoft Internet Explorer all versions.  We prepared the IE Referer XSSer page very long ago but only recently we enhanced it for easy generation of PoC link.
