Write short note on cross-site scripting (XSS).

Cross-site scripting (XSS) is like a sneaky bug in websites that bad actors can exploit. Imagine you’re visiting a website, and this bug lets someone else secretly inject harmful code into that site. This injected code then runs in your browser without you even knowing, and it can do nasty things like stealing your login info, messing with your account, or even spreading malware.

XSS is a big deal on the web because it’s like a backdoor that allows attackers to play tricks on users. They can pretend to be you, doing things you normally do on a website, but with harmful intentions. If you have special access to a website, like being an admin, the attacker might get full control over everything.
