|How do you perform on a test that checks your vulnerability to a cross-site scripting attack and malicious code injection? |
How are we testing?:
This test visits a Zscaler CDN website that simulates a compromise by malicious code and checks to see if it would have been able to compromise your web browser.
Why is this test important?:
Cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks inject malicious code into an otherwise legitimate site. An XSS attack can steal web visitors' credentials and session keys (e.g. passwords and other sensitive data) and tarnish the reputation of the compromised website.
Cross-Site Scripting Attacks - a Perennial Problem
Cross site scripting attacks can compromise major websites like Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. These attacks are such a perennial problem that they consistently rank in the Top 10 vulnerabilities as identified by the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).Source
