A web attack is an attempt to exploit vulnerabilities in the web page, or parts of it. The attacks may involve the content, web application or server of a site. Websites offer many opportunities for attackers to gain unauthorised access, steal confidential information, or introduce malicious content.

Attackers usually look for weaknesses in the structure or content of websites to steal data, control the website or harm users. The most frequent attacks are brute force attacks as well as cross-site scripting (XSS) and attacks to upload files. Other attacks are carried out via social engineering, such as phishing, or malware attacks like ransomware trojans, trojans and worms. spyware.

The most common website attacks focus on the web application which is comprised of the hardware and software a website uses to show information to users. Hackers can target websites through flaws. These include SQL injection, cross site request forgery and reflection-based XSS.

SQL injection attacks exploit the databases that web applications depend on to store and provide content. These attacks could expose a variety of sensitive data, especially passwords, account logins and credit card numbers.

Cross-site scripting attacks exploit the flaws within a website’s code to display images or text, hijack session information and redirect users to fake websites. Reflective XSS also allows an attacker to execute arbitrary code.

A man-in the-middle attack occurs when a third party intercepts communications between you and a web server. The attacker could then modify the messages as well as spoof certificates and alter DNS responses and other things. This is a very effective way to control your online activities.
