- Supply Chain Attack: This method of infiltration occurs when attackers compromise a vulnerability from a third party vendor. Once the attackers gain access through these vendors they are then able to inject their malicious code that would disseminate among the original code giving control and access to the attackers.
- Direct Hack of Website: Attackers can also infiltrate a website’s code by acquiring credentials from administrators through a brute-force attack. This type of an attack most commonly occurs with CMS (Content Management System) platforms.
- Implementing Content Security Policy (CSP): With content security policies, businesses are able to restrict the transfer of communication and data between unknown and untrusted domains. With this form of a restriction, attackers hoping to inject malicious code will be blocked and won’t be able to complete their attacks.
