Security Problems on Java Script technology

Hi Christina, your query can easily be solved. The main problems faced by java are those such as privacy problems whereby there are no privacy of the system files which are meant to be hidden.

Another error is with the java applets whereby the javascript technology cannot be used to invoke the applets.

Netscape however works to the best of their ability to solve these errors and provide solutions.

Another error is that a javascript cannot reject a malicious script and solve the problem with malicious code. A malicious code within javascript can only be detected using a pattern or signature. A solution to this is however to allow or prevent the execution of the script and the vendors for such scripts.

I hope this solves your query

Thanks

JavaScript or JS when abbreviated is a prototype-based scripting language that is weakly typed, dynamic, and has first-class functions. It is a multi-paradigm language, supporting object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles. Cross-site scripting is a common JavaScript-related security problem or simply XSS which is a violation of the same-origin policy. XSS vulnerabilities occur when an attacker is able to cause a target web site, such as an online banking website, to include a malicious script in the webpage presented to a victim.

The script in this example can then access the banking application with the privileges of the victim, potentially disclosing secret information or transferring money without the victim's authorization. A solution to XSS vulnerabilities is to use HTML escaping whenever displaying untrusted data. Some browsers include partial protection against reflected XSS attacks, in which the attacker provides a URL including malicious script.
