Trying to protect against XSS on a CMS I'm working and I therefore encode all necessary client input but on retrieval from DB, I'm getting all these funny HTML characters displayed on the HTML Page as a result of the encoding.
I'm considering appending a decode on retrieval but I'm wondering what the point of the inital encoding is if I decode eventually.
Please how do I effectively mitigate the XSS issue using the encode/decode avenue.
Thanks in advance!
