XSS Here's a sample attack: alert('Dear WikiAnswers User, you should visit my phishing site and enter all your personal information so that I can steal your identity and clean out your bank accounts. Or maybe I will just show you nasty pictures.'); On certain sites, entering this will cause a popup. WikiAnswers' software is protected from these XSS attacks.
