How does Internet Explorer help protect me from cross-site scripting attacks?
This information applies to Windows Internet Explorer 8.
Internet Explorer's Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) Filter can help prevent one website from adding script code to another website.
XSS Filter watches how websites interact, and when it recognizes a potential attack, it will automatically block script code from running. When this happens, you will see a message in the Information bar letting you know that the webpage was modified to help protect your privacy and security.
If the modified webpage does not work properly, try going to the home page of the website and navigating to the webpage directly. If the page still does not work correctly, contact the website's administrator.
