What is Cross-site Scripting?
XSS differs from SQLi because it does not target the database of web applications; it mostly limits itself to their front end.
These kinds of attack can be non-persistent, persistent and DOM-based. The consequences of XSS attacks can be very damaging, especially when combined with social engineering.
Websites or web interfaces can become corrupted and unsafe. Cookies and authentication information can be stolen, leading to identity theft. By hacking a vulnerable company website, attackers can gain control of the company’s computer clients.
How can cross-site scripting vulnerabilities be prevented?
… specify which tags are designed as “safe” in the HTML documents created by user inputs, by blacklisting and whitelisting. Useful for websites that rely on user inputs, like forums, but it should not be used alone to combat XSS.
