Pop up warning: "XSS FILTER HAS DECTECTED A POTENTIAL XSS ATTACK TYPE:EVENT LISTENER

Unread post by fusion01 » 2016-03-04, 19:48

I have the newest Palemoon Portable x64 (26.1.1) and I have only noticed this recently like as in the last couple of weeks. It only happens on my Palemoon browsers on different computers I have. It doesn't happen with Firefox or with Internet Explorer or Maxthon Browser or even Waterfox Portable x64. I have noticed this mostly on forums I frequent but it even pops up on Amazon's website as well as eBay. WHat's going on here and is this a security vulnerability of Palemoon? Like I said it happens only on Palemoon's browser.

The XSS filter was added as a security feature in Pale Moon 26.

The XSS filter is a security feature from Pale Moon 26.0. Look here: https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10827

No other browser have this security feature, so no other browser can show this message.
