Each time I've tried to access the forums today I've had a warning bar message that says
?Internet Explorer has modifies this page to help prevent cross-site scripting. Click here for more information.

I click for the more info and get this:-

How does Internet Explorer help protect me from cross-site scripting attacks?
Internet Explorer's Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) Filter can help prevent one website from adding script code to another website. XSS Filter watches how websites interact, and when it recognizes a potential attack, it will automatically block script code from running. When this happens, you will see a message in the Information bar letting you know that the webpage was modified to help protect your privacy and security.

If the modified webpage does not work properly, try going to the home page of the website and navigating to the webpage directly. If the page still does not work correctly, contact the website's administrator.



It only happens on this site and just started today. Any ideas what the issue is?

The problem seems to have gone now, thankfully :)
