Malicious Active Content
Definition - What does Malicious Active Content mean?
Techopedia explains Malicious Active Content
Plug-ins such as ActiveX are notorious for their vulnerability to malicious active content. In addition, malicious active content can steal a password or pin and later access a website with confidential information while making it look as though it was accessed by the authorized user. This can make it even harder to track whether malicious active content has been used in the attack.
