* Risk Level:*
High - Spoofed log records / Injected JavaScript can lead to malware attacks

*Summary:*
Mobile-spy.com's user administration web application contains a critical
bug that allows anyone to inject spoofed incoming/outgoing phone
records, SMS messages, and URL's into the backend database for ANY user
of the software. In addition, since the incoming records are not
filtered, it is trivial to inject malicious JavaScript/HTML into the
webpage viewed by the user of the software. Finally, the user/pass is
stored locally on the victims phone as plaintext.

*Details:*

* Workaround:*

messages that are stored on Mobile-spy server using a secure browser
with JavaScript disabled.
