Cross site scripting messages?

boogiebaby May 22, 2014 02:55 PM

For the last few days, everytime I go to a Chowhound page from my desktop at work, I get a Microsoft warning at the bottom of the screen saying Microsoft modified this page to prevent cross-site scripting. When I close it out, it reappears a couple minutes later. This is something new, and really annoying. Sometimes, it follows up with an error box that says "www.chowhound.chow.com has stopped responding." and then the whole thing closes out.

I tried it at my parent's house and it did the same thing, so I know it's not my work computer.

What gives?

      This is likely something unique to Internet Explorer; we'll take a look and see what we find. Is this on all pages across Chowhound?

        Yes! It started a few days back. Extremely annoying.

          Ditto, and on IE.

            Because some of us use work issued computers and our employers frown on us taking computer matters into our own hands and changing their setup.

            Go to tools, Internet Options, Security, Custom Level. Then scroll down to Scripting. Disable anything offering to prompt or warn. Also disable the XSS filter.

            These are only steps to get rid of the pop-up. I am not qualified to dispense computer security advice.

                Just curious if users are still seeing this issue? Thanks.

                  I'm not having that issue any more.

                    Forgot to add that I abandoned IE for Firefox and that is probably why the issue went away.

                    I still am.

                    I also keep getting errors that chow.com has stopped responding and/or there is a long-running script. Been happening for the last 3 days or so.
