A security feature that’s included with the Microsoft Edge browser appears to have stopped working, according to Gareth Heyes, a security researcher with cyber-security firm PortSwigger.
The security feature in question is named “XSS Filter” and is a Microsoft-developed security mechanism that can prevent basic cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks inside browsers.
Microsoft developed and launched XSS Filter in 2008 when it was first included with Internet Explorer 8, but the feature has since expanded to Edge, and adopted by other browsers such as Google Chrome and Safari.
