2. Script’s programming or coding
A vulnerability is an issue with a script’s programming or coding. There are several types of vulnerabilities that can occur. The first type is a weakness in the scripting language that could exploit a script by malicious users. Another type is known as context-specific attacks and can lead to the accidental compromising of your web browser, web server, or application. A similar type of vulnerability is called cross-site scripting and enables attackers to steal user data. The last type is always referred to as an information disclosure vulnerability and allows attackers to view or edit the information stored on your computer without permission.
3. Cross-Domain Scripting
This is a type of information disclosure vulnerability that can be exploited if your code contains scripts from another domain. For example, an attacker could use an script that sets your user’s cookie from a different environment to the field he’s currently on (a ‘cross-site scripting’) to get access to your data on the other site.

7. Sensitive Static Data
When you use third-party add-ons with your appealingscript, and those add-ons have vulnerabilities, you will be susceptible to hacks. Some of the most common vulnerable add-ons include jQuery, Less.js, and Dojo Toolkit.
8. Insecure Deserialization

10. Professional legal advice
The content of this blog post is not meant to be a substitute for professional legal advice; you should also contact an attorney regarding specific matters. The many vulnerabilities that exist in the programming language are well-known to security researchers. This article contains all of the most important and a few not-so-important methods for protecting oneself from these risks. We will also touch on some of the hows and whys of these issues, as well as how they can be mitigated.
