xss_terminate is a plugin in that makes stripping and sanitizing HTML stupid-simple. Install and forget. And forget about forgetting to h() your output, because you won‘t need to anymore.

This plugin replaces the default ERB template handlers with erubis, and switches the behaviour to escape by default rather than requiring you to escape. This is consistent with the behaviour in Rails 3.0.

Somewhat more radical filters designed to decimate malicious requests during a denial-of-service (DoS) attack by chopping their connection well before your Rack app wastes any significant resources on them – ouch! The filters have been proven to work against certain DoS attacks, however, they might also block IPs behind proxies or VPNs. Make sure you have understood how the filters are triggered and consider this middleware a last resort only to be enabled during an attack.
