Defender purpose is to block XSS attacks by filtering user input data. In these fields you add which words or phrases you do NOT wish to be accepted. It works just like apache's mod_security. If you search on the internet for how these attacks are performed you will find useful information on the way hackers usually use to attack to a site. There are two categories: attack to the database by adding words such as BENCHMARK, DROP, UNION, JOIN etc and attacking to the php/file system (for example by trying to overwrite global variables).
