IE8 Security advances : blocks cross scrpting attacks

"One surprise I discovered during the process was that IE8 includes a Cross Site Scripting filter which effectively blocked this attack. I'm very impressed with the effort that Microsoft's taken to mitigate one of the most common web application security issues. Every other browser vendor needs to add this functionality yesterday."

Hey, this is Feran with the IE Outreach Team. That is a great new security feature in IE8. IE8 has many other security advancements. In fact, have you seen the recent study conducted by NSS Labs that names Internet Explorer 8 the best browser for protecting consumers against malware and phishing attacks?
