The browser extracts the scripts from the page and passes them to Script Blocker. It scans them for viruses and if everything is OK, the browser continues execution. If you use Firefox and NoScript it will 'block' strange scripts (if you set it so).

Tech, does standard shield also offer protection in this case? With script blocker being an extra layer of protection?
