Composer Notes: jstree

Avoid XSS using `force_text` option.
Mon Oct 31 00:25:29 EDT 2016

There is a setting that you can enable if you want pure text nodes: http://www.jstree.com/api/#/?q=force&f=$.jstree.defaults.core.force_text jstree can not know if you want the user to be able to input HTML or not - hence the setting - just set it to true in your config.




Composer Notes: bootstrap

DOM XSS by Misusing Bootstrap
Tue May 31 01:13:10 EDT 2016

"First of all, let me make it clear that this article is not about XSS in Bootstrap itself (the very popular libraries originally from Twitter to fancify your website), it?s about XSS as a result of using Bootstrap in an insecure fashion. It?s based on a real penetration test ? the site in question wasn?t vulnerable but it was immediately clear how things could have gone wrong. I thought it would be an interesting XSS article, being both DOM-based and making use of a big-name library like Bootstrap."
