Can visiting a website virus your computer if you have JavaScript disabled?



  • Let's say I visit a website that could potentially infect my computer by just from visiting it. If I disable JavaScript, is it still possible to infect my computer?

    I have already searched the site for this question, but I only find questions like this that don't mention disabling JavaScript



  • Yes, it is possible.

    Javascript is widely used for malware infection, and it's by far the most used way, but it's not the only vector for infection. If you run any vulnerable extension, or the browser uses any outdated library, then a specially crafted element can lead to code execution even without Javascript.
