About This Episode

Published on Jan 2nd, 2018

When building web applications, always assume that the user is malicious. As such, any time you accept and display user input, sanitize it first. Think of this as the equivalent of throwing their input into a sink filled with soapy water. The goal is to clean that HTML as best as we can. Scrub it down in preparation for display. Script tag? Sorry, but no. Inline styles? See ya. Click event handlers? Hell no.
