  • Computer Chat jquery- is it safe to run on your server

    Just curious if jquery is safe to run on your shared server?? I did not see any active exploits but I'm thinking about using it.

    jquery is a javascript library, it doesn't run on the server, it runs on the client. It can't perform any action that can't be done by a standard HTTP request per-se

    So, yes, you are pretty safe, since nothing runs on your server.

          Yeah, yeah! ~

          You know I was 99.9999% sure about this but I read that "my site got hacked thread" here and it looked like the javascript inserts were doing all the damage. That little voice in my head kept saying is there any way a built in function could have a XSS flaw and allow hackers to F' up your site.

          For the most part I knew better But years ago I ran a news script that had a vulnerability and that really opened my eyes. The only thing I run on my main .com site are vB and my customer script. I also run a stats program but every item I have runs under a different SQL DB and a different SQL user pass.

          So yeah, I am a bit overcautious

            Can never be too cautious Mind you, even dedicated boxes can be vulnerable. If you get into one box on a network, it's possible to get into others too, even if they're not running the same exploitable software.

              Agree If I knew enough about everything I just get a dedicated at the point. But honestly it's much safer for me to just be on a shared

                  Actually I'm just moving myself, my computer, and somehow my website into a nice safe bubble!
