NoScript security tool released for Android, Maemo

The mobile version includes protection for cross-site scripting attacks and clickjacking

IDG News Service - The developer of the widely used Firefox extension NoScript has released a version for the Android and Maemo operating systems.
NoScript is a security tool that can be used to block the execution of JavaScript, Java, Flash and plugins by websites that are viewed as being potentially malicious. Many Web-based attacks on computers are initiated by JavaScript.

The mobile version, called NoScript 3.0a8, includes protection against cross-site scripting attacks, in which a script drawn from another website is allowed to run that shouldn't. Cross-site scripting can allow an attacker to steal information or potentially cause other malicious code to run.
