Over the last couple weeks we have received reports regarding cross-site scripting vulnerabilities on our sites.  As part of working to remediate these issues, the question came up about what level of protection we have (or can get) at the Apache layer.  

Could you please suggest how apache can help with preventing XSS?

Thank you
