Thieving pop-ups
« on: June 30, 2004, 09:30:08 PM »

You know how you eventually find out that almost every food will give you cancer or explode your heart or something? That's how we feel about the Web lately. Today, watch out for Trojan-infected pop-ups at your bank site that log your keystrokes and steal your passwords. Affected sites include Citibank, Barclays Bank, and Deutsche Bank. Sigh. Are you still using Internet Explorer?

You most likely need Sun's Java Runtime Edition.  I require it to work with my banks site

I think inherant java support would be nice for the final version of firefox, but it does bulge the size and alot of people can live without java.

Yea, Java is huge. Generally though, Bob, whenever you need a plugin firefox will tell you when, how and where to get it.
