After all, in 2021, web applications were the second most common attack vector for confirmed breaches according to data from the latest edition of Verizon’s Data Breach Investigation Report (DBIR). What’s more important is that, among those confirmed web application breaches, vulnerability exploits were found to be among the top execution paths. Code-level exploits like XSS or Magecart attacks are the vehicle for attackers to exfiltrate sensitive customer data through session hijacking, clickjacking, credential harvesting…you get the idea.
- From a user perspective, there is one and only one thing to scan. Users upload the packaged JS artifact and get results back in seconds.
