Description:

A Custom Search Engine is a tailored search experience,
built using Google's core search technology, which
prioritizes or restricts search results based on websites
and pages that you specify, and which can be tailored to
reflect your point of view or area of expertise.

Google Custom search Engine have a flaw that allows a remote
cross site scripting attack.This flaw exists because the
application does not validate The texarea in the wen preview
a invite.This could allow a user to create a specially
invite that would execute arbitrary code in a user's browser
within the trust relationship between the browser and the server,
leading to a loss of integrity.
