Vulnerabilities of Ajax

Despite the benefits of Ajax, few disadvantages are progressing to Ajax hijacking or hacking.

👉 Complexity

👉 Insecure

👉 The inability of SEO optimization

👉 Dependent only on JavaScript

 

AJAX HIJACKING🔥🔥

Ajax hijacking is a technique that hackers or intruders engage in a web application as a valid user, to access sensitive data. Forestalling the attacks is uncomplicated, just add only a couple of extra lines of code.

Let us have a look at an example where the intruder gains access to an e-mail as a legitimate user. Moreover, he can read and perform all the operations that a legitimate user can execute. The intruder can send vulnerable or threatening emails to outsiders pretending as a valid user.

Those shortcomings make hackers feel free to execute vulnerable attacks to Ajax. A less secured framework enables hackers to hijack and misuse web applications.
