Abstract : Browser extensions have a great role in bringing changes to the web browser behavior and improving browser performance. However, nowadays, many browser extensions fail to meet the security requirements. Due to this, they become a medium for various attackers to steal the credential information of the users. The proposal in this paper makes a pitch for the protection of an augmented browser extension against mutation-based cross-site scripting attack. A method is introduced for hardening the browser extension script along with dead code injection. A mutation-based cross-site scripting identifier to identify the attacks that affect the extensions is also discussed in this paper. These methods will protect browser extensions from various malicious script injection attacks.
