Shape security hopes to reinvent Web security by inverting the concept of code polymorphism and using it against malware. The idea is to using polymorphism in real time on websites, so that sites are constantly rewriting their code while preserving Web app functionality, making them moving targets to thwart attackers, who count on their usual static nature to pick them apart at will.
