I read on a list of medications for Multiple Sclerosis that corticosteroids are commonly used, especially when it comes to the treatment of acute attacks of MS. That surprised me - I thought MS attacked the central nervous system? So why do they use corticosteroids for something like that? Can someone explain?

Multiple Sclerosis often caused inflammation of the muscles, which is where corticosteroids come in. As far as I know, prednisone is the most commonly used one. These are not disease modifying drugs, but rather immediate treatments for attacks, just to fight inflammation. I hope that explains it. Do ask if there is anything else you want to know.
