    Thanks Ron! XSS doesn't get nearly the attention it merits in these forums. It's always lesser threats that get discussed in depth and at length instead.

    It would have been even better if he gave more clear examples of how such an attack would work. It's still not completely clear to me. And I don't think I have ever been exploited by an XSS attack in over 20 years of web browsing.

    This site might offer some clearer examples and explanation. BTW, XSS is one of the reasons why browser extensions like NoScript and uBlockO are available and recommended.
