CVE

Rule Vulnerability

Cross Site Scripting (XSS)

Cross Site Scripting (XSS) attackers send malicious input to a site that does not validate the input, usually in the form of a script. The application sends the malicious code to the browsers of other users, which will execute the script unknowingly. The malicious code uses the trust of the host website to access cookies, session tokens, or other sensitive information. There are multiple types of XSS, including Stored, Reflected, and DOM based.
