AJAX Poses Security, Performance Risks

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 1:44 pm

Web services and service-oriented architecture security software provider Forum Systems issued an alert on Jan. 30 for AJAX-related security threats and performance issues.

Asynchronous JavaScript and XML, or AJAX, enables responsive and interactive Web services; however, the reliance on XML as the content type for requests and response payloads means that applications are exposed to Web services vulnerabilities, Forum officials said. Thus, officials at the Sandy Utah, company recommend that organizations implement XML content filtering, Web services security and XML acceleration capabilities to ensure scalable and secure AJAX applications.
