Only here on Udemy!
You will learn how to test web application for Cross Site Scripting manually by preforming code injection from the start, as well as performing various XSS attacks through different XSS examples (changing content, session hijacking, etc) by using various XSS payloads at the same time.
We will go through basic types of Cross Site Scripting such as Stored XSS, Reflected XSS, Dom-Based XSS and we'll explain how you can pass through all of the XSS challenges from one of the biggest Internet companies of today.
After this course you should be able to without any problems comprehend how to fix Cross Site Scripting vulnerabilities by using input validation and output escaping everywhere on the web application where it's necessary.
Even though I believe that general Hacking Tutorials that cover different topics are quite good to understand what is Ethical Hacking in general and what cyber security jobs are all about, putting "Hacking for beginners" in your resume is not really an option. But if you pass this hacking course with attention and get a good understanding of what is Cross Site Scripting, you'll have a valuable cyber security skill under your belt that will look good in every resume of the future pen-tester, cyber security consultant, and even a web developer.
In this course my intention is not only to pass you the knowledge about XSS, but to direct you to adopt a certain mindset that will lead you to results.
Usage of techniques shown in this course without permit and consent of the other side will subject to criminal prosecution with potential jail penalty depending on the legal system of your country.
