You have to start with using tools. CAT.NET should be used for Microsoft's
c# code for example.

You must ensure that all untrusted input is white-listed (you cannot rely on
black-listing) and almost all text displayed in a page, in a cookie, and in
a URL is encoded. Anything violating the previous sentence is a potential
XSS vulnerability. Reviewer can look for it - would become a full time job
if the amount of code is big.

That will not mitigate Cross Site Forgery attacks though.

Hello,

I'm new to XSS detection and mitigation. Is there a very reliable way to
detect XSS in source code without using any tool. There are tools for XSS
but they seemed to can detect properly.
