Detect Security Threats from a String in JavaScript

Due to the ever-growing variety of cyber threats, protecting your applications and websites is not as easy as it used to be. To ensure that the data you interact with is safe, it’s a good idea to implement additional security programs on top of your standard anti-virus software. For instance, the following API can be used in JavaScript to detect cyber threats that often sneak past firewalls and virus protection, such as XXE, SSRF, and XXE attacks.

To kick off the process, we will install the jQuery library:

bower install jquery

Now, we can add our text input and API key to the below example code:

var settings = {
"url": "https://api.cloudmersive.com/security/threat-detection/content/automatic/detect/string",
"method": "POST",
"timeout": 0,
"headers": {
"Content-Type": "application/json",
"Apikey": "YOUR-API-KEY-HERE"
},
"data": JSON.stringify("<string>"),
};

If a threat has been identified, it will be clearly listed in the result, allowing you to address it immediately. To retrieve your API key, head over to the Cloudmersive website and register for a free account; this provides 800 monthly calls across our multitude of APIs.

There’s an API for that. Cloudmersive is a leader in Highly Scalable Cloud APIs.
