Scanning Websites for SRI Hash Usage with sritest.io
One problem is the slow implementation of SRI, thus sritest.io was born. The new service enables website owners and frontend developers to evaluate their sites for SRI hash usage. Sritest.io aims to help the widespread implementation of SRI, thus, ultimately protect website visitors from malicious code.
Malware Injecting Torrent Mirrors
While ISPs in the UK and other countries are blocking file sharing websites such as The Pirate Bay, movie-lovers have different alternatives to circumvent these restrictions. One popular way to overcome the filtering is using mirrors.
Torrent mirrors are essentially reverse proxies, which are forwarding HTTP traffic between the UK and the original sites hosted elsewhere. Data supposed be left intact and the only difference should be the address in the URL bar.
There are many misconceptions around the potential effects cross-site scripting (XSS). The usual pop-up alert(1) window is failing to demonstrate the potential consequences of XSS to non-security people. See a walk-through process of exfiltrating data from a Wordpress site by exploiting a XSS vulnerability.
