XSS Virus Whitepaper


XSS Virus Whitepaper


The following paper explores the new threat of cross-site ing (XSS) viruses. To date, cross site ing has never been utilised to generate viruses. These viruses are a new species which are platform independent and not affected by common firewall configurations. XSS viruses could have a significant impact for Internet continuity, including distributed denial of service (DDOS) attacks, SPAM and dissemination of browser exploits. This is particularly relevant with the increasing sophistication of web browsers and the growing popularity of web based applications such as Wikis and Blogs.
