Cross-Site Scripting

Categories: SecurityCommunicationsFinancial ServicesHealthcareMediaTechnology

Cross-site scripting (XSS) is often used to gain access to a user’s browser and access their sensitive data. It does this by targeting specific vulnerabilities in the web application and injecting a malicious script unknowingly triggered by the user.

In this whitepaper, we’ll talk about the three main types of XSS attack: reflected cross-site scripting, stored cross-site scripting and DOM-based cross-site scripting. Learn what they look like, how they are activated and what they do as well as best practices for preventing this kind of attack and for keeping your web applications safe.
