    Microsoft addresses XSS in Internet Explorer



    Microsoft is planning to add a series of new security features to the next version of its Internet Explorer browser, including protection against cross-site scripting attacks.

    A beta version of IE 8 is due out in August, and along with the XSS filter, it will include a filter designed to provide better protection against phishing attacks, features that make it easier for developers to request resources and share information across domains, and some changes to the way that ActiveX controls are handled by the browser. Specifically, developers will be able to write controls that are only available for the individual user who downloads them.
