Cross Site Scripting

Cross Site Scripting

Cross Site Scripting (XSS) is again more dangerous in terms of a particular site being targeted. Rather than the actual site being the victim though the target of an XSS hack is actually the sites users or visitors. The attack can vary in complexity, the most simple, for example, being to hide a Javascript link in a Blog entry. More complex attack may actually compromise the sites actual html code. Although the actual site isn't the target the sites reputation can of course take serious damage should it become compromised.
