script code enemy of your browser
« on: October 09, 2005, 07:18:08 PM »
Hi forum friends,

Crafted scripters can crash your browser with a simple line of script, well maybe two. The Firefox browser has no defense against the "crash_nested_array_sort_loop" it makes a stackerror.and crashes. I tested it and the flaw is till there.
, the same with td colspan = "200" and in the next line td colspan= "20000" two and three, crash because Firefox does not check the value of colspan. That is why my friends, NoScript is in my browser.

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!
