In this type of attack, the attacker opens a website in a browser tab and then modifies its content using JavaScript or other scripting languages to make it look like a trusted website.

For example, they can use the following input: username: ' OR 1=1 -- password: password The resulting SQL query becomes: SELECT * FROM us
