IE 8 Security Features Could Be Turned Against Users, Researchers Say.

At Black Hat Europe, presenters show how filters designed to prevent cross-site scripting can be used to launch those very attacks

The good news is that Microsoft's Internet Explorer 8 browser offers a new set of filters designed to prevent some cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. The bad news is that those same filters could be used to enable XSS attacks.
