Bypassing XSS Filters: Techniques and Solutions

Reflected Cross Site Scripting

In the ever-evolving landscape of web security, Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) stands as one of the most pernicious vulnerabilities. XSS allows attackers to inject malicious scripts into web pages which then run on another user’s browser. These injected scripts can lead to a variety of malicious actions, such as stealing session cookies or defacing web pages. To counteract these vulnerabilities, developers deploy multiple techniques. But as developers fortify defenses, attackers refine their techniques to bypass these security measures. This article will explore some techniques used to bypass XSS filters and how developers can stay vigilant.
