Most web apps accept some kind of input, whether from users or through other automated means. All app input must be treated as untrusted and must be vigorously validated to ensure application and data integrity. In this course, you'll learn the difference between Java and JavaScript, as well as what cross-site scripting is and how it can compromise a web site and its visitors. Next, you'll learn how to execute various XSS attacks against an intentionally vulnerable virtual machine, including through web forms.
