Malicious web sites perform drive-by download attacks to infect their visitors with malware. Current protection approaches rely on black- or whitelisting techniques that are difficult to keep up-to-date. As todays drive-by attacks already employ encryption to evade network level detection we propose a series of techniques that can be implemented in web browsers to protect the user from such threats. In addition, we discuss challenges and open problems that these mechanisms face in order to be effective and efficient.
