Online advertising company fixes severe XSS flaw
An online advertising company has fixed a vulnerability in its platform that could have allowed hackers to steal information from a large number of users.
Cross-site scripting flaws are one of the most common faults in websites. They allow an attacker to inject malicious code into a website, which then can be used to steal data and for other attacks.
“As soon as we were aware of the issue, we fixed it ASAP and ensured our advertisers and publishers were not affected,” said James Hakim, PublicityClerks’ founder and CEO.
