Cross-Site Scripting Attacks (XSS)

XSS attacks are the result of client-side scripts being injected into web pages viewed by users.

To execute the attack, cybercriminals often use a cross-site scripting vulnerability, like an insecure web plugin or the same-origin policy to bypass the website’s access controls.

XSS effects range from nuisances to a major security risk, depending on the sensitivity of the data handled by the website.
