How secure are all those scripts on your website?

IDC report looks at threats and emerging solutions

If a hacker is looking for low-hanging fruit, scripts are easy pickin’s. They’re ubiquitous, often uncatalogued, and very vulnerable. Even trusted third-party scripts have been known to carry malicious code. An IDC report, available now compliments of Akamai, offers important insights into this threat:

  • How browser-based attacks work and evade detection, sometimes stealing data for months before they’re discovered
  • New technologies that analyze script behavior, identify and report suspect interactions in real time, provide immediate mitigation, and automate policy creation
  • Expectations for the evolving market, for protection against client-side attacks
