Report on Javascript attacks on Unix

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data:
Prepare a report discussing from an administration and security perspective, role and function of a JavaScript within a UNIX network. You should illustrate your answer with practical examples. In particular attention should me paid to the following points:

1. What type of attacks is it possible to implement using JavaScript?
2. The ability to secure a Web Client against JavaScript attacks.
3. Is it possible to use JavaScript as part of a Trojan horse attack?
4. Can JavaScript be used for Cross-Site scripting attacks?

Complete Name of School (University), City (State), Country, Name of Professor, and Course Number (Link to Course):
Bharathiyar University , Coimbatore

I'd be grateful if someone could help me with it.

Sorry, but I don't think that this sort of information should be on the public Internet. I'm feel sure that Sun Microsystems (aka Oracle nowadays) will give an answer of some sort to your queries by land mail albeit subject to adequate verifiction of your credentials.
