Prevent XSS Vulnerability

Prevent XSS Vulnerability

Prevent XSS Vulnerability helps you to secure your site from the XSS Attacks. It Captures the URL and checks whether it contains any XSS Vulnerability code or not. If any vulnerability code is found which creates the issue then that URL would be redirected to the same URL by just encoding or/and removing the XSS Vulnerability code from it. This can be managed from the Settings Page of the plugin. You can easily exclude the characters which you are using on your site.
