Web Security

As the use of Web pages and applications has become prevalent in recent years, careful design and development of them is paramount. Attackers can use an enormous variety of techniques to compromise our machines, steal sensitive information, and trick us into carrying out activities without our knowledge. These types of attacks divide into two main categories: client-side attacks and server-side attacks.

Client-Side Attacks

Client-side attacks take advantage of weaknesses in the software loaded on our clients, or those attacks that use social engineering to trick us into going along with the attack. There are a large number of such attacks, but we will focus specifically on some that use the Web as an attack vehicle.
