Internet security is studied by computer science and serves as a safe medium for exchanging data while minimizing the likelihood of online threats. Through the use of advanced web-based software is growing because they provide the user with a lot of features. Web technologies have an important role in different industries, like schooling, retail, medical care, and payment systems. Session bugs are becoming more common throughout web applications whereas their value in the community grows. Hackers try to profit from incorrectly designed websites so they take hold of victim’s sessions and also of identities. As a result, session handling represents a substantial security challenge to web applications. Weak programming methods are among the causes of effective session acquisition. A further explanation is that the server as well as the customer verify themselves differently at first.

In recent years most common strike used amongst attackers is session hijacking. Based on the latest recent OWASP update, session hijacking is indeed one of the second most frequent assaults that happen mostly. It is one important attack among others, which a hacker may use to connect directly to a customer’s operating session. User Hijacking occurs when a hacker takes the victim’s session id and uses it to obtain entry into the victim’s actual session. This system will provide protection in case of this attack form once it has been successfully implemented.
