Recently I came to know about CSRF, XSRF and XSS attacks. How can Netgear router support help me with this issue?

Cross-site request forgery (CSRF and XSRF) take advantage of the website trust in the user’s internet browser. Whenever a user is logged into a website, an attacker sends a request pretending to be the user even when the user is not online. A typical situation can be that the user is logged online, the attacker will send a request to post a virus infected download that will make it look like the user has sent it. Using this the attacker could gain access to personal information or request the user to transfer money into their account.

On the other hand, Cross-site scripting (XSS) takes advantage of the weakness in websites and web-based applications. This occurs when the attacker injects a malicious code inside a trusted website to access session tokens, browser cookies or other sensitive information. The most common way for an attacker to attack is using the HTML code in an email or the JavaScript in the mail or website that the user is using.

In order to protect your computer and the data inside it against these attacks; kindly follow the guidelines as prepared by the highly efficient staff of Netgear router technical support.

Guide on handling CSRF, XSRF and XSS attacks

  • Always log out of websites when you are done with your online work. This should be done particularly if you are using any site that directs or accepts payments or stores sensitive data.
  • Do not open any email message with attachments if you do not know the sender.
  • Don’t open attachments that aren’t trustworthy or which you didn’t request.
  • Be aware of mass email messages that often have pictures, links, or attachments, even if these come from known contacts. Always remember, Email accounts can always be compromised using a virus program.
  • Always keep your web browser up to date. Do not use a web browser that does not receives updates from the developer.
  • Never allow your web browser to save any passwords or other login information.
  • Do not allow any websites, particularly banking or shopping websites, to remember your personal information, especially login information. Websites use cookies to remember the user information which makes them open to CSRF and XSS attacks.
