Cyber Security — XSS Defense and Prevention
What Exactly Is XSS?
The second type is the Stored XSS whereby the perpetrator fetches a non-sanitized input from the website’s database. However, the fetched value is a script that still runs from the client’s browser (Wang et al., 2018). The third type is the DOM-based XSS whereby the targeted malicious input from the client is never sent to the database, thus allowing the perpetrator to access the data from the client’s browser.
