It worked for Ebay but what are the disadvantages of changing it to "disable."

If it is disabled then you will be open to attack from malicious site that may inject scripting.

You can leave it enabled, and then then disable it as needed, or use a more secure browser like Firefox.

I have to go to Ebay every day and never got that message when I used MSE.
I switched from MSE to Trend Micro Titatium and Trend Micro is quick to label a website as dangerous. Trend Micro if fine with Ebay except for that script message above and it was with IE and I do not recall getting that message before today.

So, cross site scripting should not be something new that started today and only now did IE decide to give the message.

I use both IE and FF due to two hotmail accounts open at the same time.

Microsoft has been updating IE with the regular updates and part of the cleanup is to tighten security.

So, cross site scripting should not be something new that started today and only now did IE decide to give the message.

IE has had security issues for more than 10 years, some are still not fully addressed, and it is the least secure of the mainstream browsers. The lack of security has cost them a huge chunk of market share and to get back in the game they have to close the holes, but they cannot just do it in code like FF and Chrome because a lot of legacy applications need the security holes to work.  So they make security optional and it appears that now they have added a message about it.

..........We have Trend Micro Titanium so maybe it will catch the sites that may inject scripting. But, what is the risk of "scripting" by a malicious site?

Download code that allows your computer to accept commands from a remote server that turns it your computer into a zombie on a botnet
Steal your personal information.
Use your email client to send spam
install addware
install spyware
just about anything else you can think of (and probably some you haven't)

BTW Trend Micro Titanium should be able to catch injection.  I would never use anything but Kaspersky, but what you have should handle the AV tasks fine just don't switch to something weak like Norton or McAfee.

I think that you just need to add the websites, i.e. eBay and other websites which you trusts their security standard to the the list of trusted sites and disable XSS filter for trusted sites only.

Disabling was directly related to the title, but the other information is very helpful as well.
