XSS OverviewDuration: 11:57

What is cross-site scripting and what is its impact?

Reflected XSSDuration: 15:53

Reflected XSS happens when the XSS payload is sent to a server and sent back to the client.

Stored XSSDuration: 7:04

Stored XSS happens when the server keeps the XSS payload in database or on the file system.

DOM-Based XSSDuration: 13:15

DOM-based XSS happens without any server interactions.

Code Execution: Eval and Other Vulnerable SinksDuration: 14:36

There are multiple ways (beyond XSS) to dynamically inject code in a running JavaScript applications.

Content Security Policy and XSSDuration: 15:05

Content security policies are a complex yet powerful tool to prevent browsers from loading data insecurely.
