JavaScript Files Node

JavaScript is a scripting language that enables interactive web pages. It runs inside your browser and is an important part of web applications.

Although JavaScript is valuable to developers, attackers can use it to exploit unsanitized input and inject malicious scripts into a web page.

During its scan, Netsparker identifies JavaScript Files and lists them in the Knowledge Base panel. Security professionals can then refer to the list to make sure that all JavaScripts on the target website are secure and are being used appropriately. Also, this list enables professionals to check them manually.

Once the scan is completed, all JavaScript files are listed under the JavaScript Files node in the Knowledge Base. You can access the same information in the Knowledge Base Report and Knowledge Base Tab.

Netsparker forms Knowledge Base nodes on its findings. If the JavaScript Files node is not listed, it means that Netsparker did not find any.

For further information, see Knowledge Base Nodes.
