I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

For prevention see this write-up https://www.owasp.org/index.php/XSS_(Cross_Site_Scripting)_Prevention_Cheat_Sheet

It includes a link to their write-up on injection theory. https://www.owasp.org/index.php/Injection_Theory

I would also mention their testing guide to your QA team. That is how I found owasp originally and have found them to be a great resource. https://www.owasp.org/index.php/OWASP_Testing_Project
