Webrep + Firefox + gmail
« on: March 22, 2011, 11:51:45 PM »
Hey all

dont know if anyone else has run into this but.

In firefox 4 with webrep extension enabled i sent myself a test email message from gmail

it arrived with some rather odd added HTML.

Code: [Select]
<div onmouseout=3D"cancel =3D false; window.setTimeout(WRCHideContent, 1000=
);" onmouseover=3D"cancel =3D true;" style=3D"" id=3D"wrchoverdiv"><div cla=
ss=3D"wrc_container wrc_header"><div class=3D"wrc_logo">WebRep</div></div><=
img class=3D"hline" src=3D"chrome://wrc/skin/png/line-dark-horizontal.png">=
<div class=3D"wrc_title">

Overall rating</div><img class=3D"hline" src=3D"chrome://wrc/skin/png/line-=
dark-horizontal.png"><div id=3D"wrc_bigscore"></div><div id=3D"wrc_txtratin=
g" class=3D"wrc_txtrating"></div><div class=3D"wrc_container"><img id=3D"wr=
ccat_shopping" height=3D"30" width=3D"30"><img id=3D"wrccat_social" height=
=3D"30" width=3D"30"><img id=3D"wrccat_news" height=3D"30" width=3D"30"><im=
g id=3D"wrccat_it" height=3D"30" width=3D"30"><img id=3D"wrccat_corporate" =
height=3D"30" width=3D"30"></div>

<div class=3D"wrc_container"><img id=3D"wrccat_pornography" height=3D"30" w=
idth=3D"30"><img id=3D"wrccat_violence" height=3D"30" width=3D"30"><img id=
=3D"wrccat_gambling" height=3D"30" width=3D"30"><img id=3D"wrccat_drugs" he=
ight=3D"30" width=3D"30"><img id=3D"wrccat_illegal" height=3D"30" width=3D"=
30"></div>

<img class=3D"hline" src=3D"chrome://wrc/skin/png/line-dark-horizontal.png"=
><div>=A0</div></div>

I did a few tests to see if it was the browser or if i had some sort of bug.

Sent test from outlook
Sent a test from hotmail
Sent test from IE (no web rep installed)

All clean
sent another test from gmail, and  there was the html again.
uninstalled webrep from FF and did another test

This time the email did not have the added html.

Now I was just wondering if anyone else had run into this?

Don't know why as the firefox 4.0 page rendering, etc. on my XP Pro system does appear to be faster than 3.6.

Google patches 23 security flaws with new Chrome 10 browser

10 March 2011
Google’s new Chrome 10 browser patches 23 security flaws, 15 of which are deemed “high” – second to “critical” in terms of severity.

The release of Chrome 10 comes just a week after Google plugged 19 security holes in Chrome 9 and just before the Pwn2Own hacking contest at CanSecWest in Vancouver.

Other security features in Chrome 10 include improved malware reporting and disabling outdated plugins by default, synced data encryption, as well as Flash Player sandboxing.


http://www.infosecurity-us.com/view/16555/google-patches-23-security-flaws-with-new-chrome-10-browser/

If they patched 23 I would hate to think how many they may have missed.

Interesting security approach to handling outdated plugins.

Questions

1.  Will they disable a plug-in when a security flaw is identified?
2.  Does there plug-in disable feature take into account Betas or does it ignore them and consider a plug-in outdated only when a new RTW version is released?
3.  What does a user do when they want to use a plug-in that Chrome has disabled if there is only a beta replacement for the outdated plug-in?  (I guess they turn off the default 8))  Will Chrome then force users to install a beta version of a plug-in if Chrome has disabled the RTW or RTM version of the plug-in?  Will Chrome allow the installation of a Beta plug-in after Chrome has disabled an outdated plug-in?

Chrome Extension Developers Can Now Track Stats Using Google Analytics

You can also use Google Analytics to track the usage of your extension once it’s installed. Check out this tutorial that explains how to integrate Google Analytics such that you can analyze how users interact with the features of your extensions.

Google chrome
How safe is it? Still tracking and calling home?

If you want privacy, use Iron. Google has gotten WORSE not better privacy wise with Chrome. They have even removed the ability to decide which cookies to accept and which to reject (just like the horrible Safari which would be a very nice browser IF they ever bother to care about privacy). Iron users have posted about possible ways around this. I just kept the last version of Iron that had Google Chrome ability to ASK about cookies. So, I am several versions behind and, honestly, since this happened with Chrome/Iron I no longer use the browser. I liked it alot but I will not use any browser that thumbs its nose at my right to privacy especially with something like cookies where there was absolutely no reason for Google to remove the ASK setting (for first party) except as an attempt to kill privacy.

Iron is Chrome with MOST of the anti-privacy features that characterize Chrome stripped out. I think Google's antics with cookies in the latest version took SRWare by surprise. Chromium has all the ANTI privacy features that Chrome has so don't use it.

It is a known issue. Wait for the latest program update.
