In Magento CE in js directory there is file blank.html

What is purpose of this file exactly?

1 Answer 1


It's used by some Magento modules like Authorizenet as a fallback page for iframes. Other uses I have't found for it yet.

The actual URL will be set with javascript most likely, the blank html page is just to give it something to initially load.

  • I am not using Authorizenet module but still receiving traffic on the page. I just want to know, is there any known vulnerability issue related this file?

    I'd probably say not but that depends on the amount of traffic. It shouldn't be insanely high. In the end, not a lot can be done with a blank html page
