Web Security Issues

Web security issues are threats or risks to the security of web applications and their users. Here are some common web security issues:
Cross-Site Scripting (XSS): It is a type of security vulnerability that allows attackers to inject malicious code into web pages viewed by other users. This attack can steal user information, hijack user sessions, and perform unauthorized actions on behalf of the user.
SQL Injection: It is a technique used to attack databases through web applications by inserting malicious SQL statements into input fields.
Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF): It is a type of attack that forces users to perform unwanted actions on a web application by tricking them into clicking a link or visiting a website.
Clickjacking: It is a technique used to trick users into clicking on something they don't intend to by overlaying a transparent or opaque layer on a web page and hiding the actual controls underneath it.
Session Hijacking: It is a type of attack that involves stealing the user's session token, which allows the attacker to impersonate the user and access their account.
To prevent these issues, web developers can use various security measures such as input validation, output encoding, authentication, access control, and secure communication protocols like HTTPS. Additionally, keeping software and systems up-to-date and running regular security audits can help identify and mitigate potential security risks.
