LXer: Session Destroyer: Automatic Webapp Session Invalidation

Published at LXer:

It is midnight. You are browsing the web. Everything seems fine. Unbeknownst to you, a rogue advertisement composed of malware is displayed on a popular website and is attempting to steal your banking credentials. What can you do? This sort of trickery happens every day and most people don't know when they are being exploited. If you run Linux, Firefox, and some popular security addon tools, then you are probably protected from most of these attacks. However, there is always the possibility that you are not! So, it is better to err on the side of safety :-) Did you know that most web attacks against users occur during the holiday shopping season? It is a sad, but true, fact.
