Content Security is the general practice to help protect web pages loading throughyour workstation’s browser.This requires a combination of correctly set browser-privacy levels and router/firewall levels.
There is a risk a hacker could use cross-site scripting (XSS) to circumvent your security through client-type applications
CyberSec can evaluate your defense-in-depth flow to compliment your layeredconfigurations, so script injection vulnerabilities from cybercriminals can be avoided.
The importance of Configuration Policies
By having your policy configurations at both the router and browser level, original content integrity can be assured to avoid fraudulent internet pages that can cause malicious code to enter your computer.
A Content Security Policy (CSP) can mitigate content injection vulnerabilities. Web page or application loading onto your PC or MAC workstation requires source authentication.
Our security reviews ensure you have the latest directive strategies are put into place to help protect this type of hacker risk.
The dangers of Cross-site scripting (XSS)
This risk has been widespread throughout cyberspace for the past decade. It does not need to come from one specific code API transport such as Java. It can also attack through Adobe Flash, Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML), Microsoft ActiveX, or VBScripting. It can transport itself through browser-page application components such as frames, links, and images, just about anything that can present itself through your, local client-sideapplications.
XSS risk challenges
- Code script injections
- Compromised cookies content
- False XML transports
- DOM-based cross-site coding
- Dangerous Link transports
- False Style header transports
- Dangerous local command executions
- Compromised and malicious plug-ins
- Same Origin Policy integrity
- Comprised cache content
- False parameter passing
- Malicious Tool Bars
While most of internet content security can be blocked and mitigated by content security settings, router or firewall presentation-type throttling, or anti-virus/spyware applications, a computer user must be educated on using discretion in allowing dangerous, client-side script executions.
For example, people love free stuff. From free virus protection, free coupon offers, or anything that seems like a great deal. Your local computer settings will detect a possible malicious attack and prompt you to verify if you want to continue by giving the link you just pressed, permission to run or install something on your system.
When this happens, no amount of security prevention can stop false presentation attacks on your workstation.
