Now a days the most challenging malware attack on the world wide web is the iframe attack.Let’s see what exactly the iframe attack is and how can we prevent our website from being infected by iframe.

What is Iframe:-

An IFrame stands for “inline frame” is just a way of loading one web page inside another,usually from a different server. That can be useful for building online applications. But malware writers can make the included page just one pixel square – meaning you can’t even see it’s there and execute the JavaScript that will run automatically from that included page so that  it looks something like %6C%20%66%72%61%6D%65%62%6F – leaving no obvious clue that it’s malicious.

How can the
Iframe attacks be stopped?:-

Sites that cache searches must improve their input checking, and server operators can search for IFrame exploit code. Google is trying to remove malware search results, and automatically detects some exploits and warns that “This site may harm your computer”. Windows users should make sure they have installed all security updates,and preferably upgrade to XP SP2 with IE7, or Vista.Running an active anti-malware guard can also help.
