In today’s Internet world, web pages are facing a severe threat which uses the client-side browser attacks. The vulnerability-based attacks are based on client-side application which becomes the major threat to web pages. The spread of malware uses software vulnerabilities which attack the client application sending request to the server if whether the attack has occurred. This detection is based on client honeypot which detects the various malicious program linked with web pages. Client honeypots are active security devices in search of malicious servers that attack clients. The client honeypot poses as a client and interacts with the server to examine whether an attack has occurred. Often the focus of client honeypots is on web browsers, but any client that interacts with servers can be part of client honeypot. In this research paper, we propose a model of detecting embedded web pages using client honeypot.
