Cross-site scripting (XSS) is a type of injection attack. When carried out, XSS attacks can transmit private data, such as cookies or other session information, to the attacker, redirect the victim to web content controlled by the attacker, or perform other malicious operations on the user's machine all under the guise of the vulnerable site. Despite being a well known vulnerability, XSS afflicts 80% of web applications. Today's fast-paced development cycles do not afford developers the time to locate and patch every vulnerability, often leaving apps open to XSS attacks. With IMMUNIO, this common attack vector is made obsolete through real-time detection and prevention.
This video will give you an understanding of what XSS attacks are, and why they are such a common attack vector. It will then demonstrate how IMMUNIO can detect and block XSS attacks in real time.
Understand how IMMUNIO deploys with your application, giving it a privileged interior view of the application at runtime, and allowing to detect and stop XSS attacks before data can be compromised.
