Abstract

There has been drastic improvement in the speed of web over the years. Because of the introduction of resource hints feature of HTML5, web has become much faster by utilizing the predictive loading of resources. This feature has become the principle road for the attacks on users privacy and security. Attacks also include popular cyber-attacks like Cross Site Request Forgery, Cookie stuffing. Mitigation to these attacks are slow and easily bypassed. Our research focuses on reviewing the present defenses and provide a novel approach to the defensive challenges. In this paper, we present CHOKEGATI, a chrome browser extension based on URL filtering approach using DOM model. By doing so, we are able to mitigate risks
involved.
