MySpace Hacked with CSRF and XSS
It seams that someone recently hacked myspace.com, the ColdFusion powered community site with millions of users.
By the time myspace shut down their site for a few hours to investigate he had over 1 million requests from unknowing myspace members for him to be listed as their myspace friend.
Too bad back in those days they didn't have xss countermeasures like Content Security Policy headers as we do today. It would have limited the damage.
