Survey and Analysis of Client Side Detection of Content Sniffing Attack

From the last few years, the attacks based on web portals have caused significant harm to users. Many of these attacks occur through the exploitations of common security vulnerabilities in web-based programs. Given that, mitigation of these attacks is extremely crucial to reduce some of the harmful consequences. Web-based applications contain vulnerabilities that can be exploited by attackers at client-side (browser) without the victim's (browser user's) knowledge. The authors' work is intended to some exploitation due to the presence of security vulnerabilities in web applications while performing seemingly benign functionalities at the client-side. In this paper, they survey the aspects of content sniffing attack mainly on client side and analyses how the control should be monitor from the server side after attack.
