Website security - how does it work?
When I load a website, I often see one to three other sites loaded and then the website I requested comes up. I have heard of website re-directs to combat unscrupulous bandits. Can someone explain this security in layman terms for me to understand the reason why and how it works?
The redirects have nothing to do with security and may also have negative security consequences. Security comes server side, not client side. That means that best practice programming and security are a must.
Redirects are often due to things like using a mobile device, changing page locations or the good ol' 302 theft that happened a couple years ago.
What this means is, there is no security added. It's done because the website owner wanted to add some other benefit.
