Re: Temp Allow PDF Placeholder Causes Internal Error

Hmm, I thought that letting pdfs run in a browser was so last century - - and that better security practise is to disable any pdf handling plugins and open pdfs outside the browser?

What is a "Worth startup"?

I'm not sure if 'startup' is the correct jargon - maybe a 'new site' is better description

Re: Norton meta redirect not getting blocked?

Quoth therube
Once you have gone /noscript/ you never go back ;-)

Ah,I don't get around much, do I. ... if I had a brain I'd be dangerous :-)
The poor visitor using the default NS was somewhat disbelieving about my "just toggle NS if a page doesn't work" ha ha.

Norton meta redirect not getting blocked?

Something weird going on and I don't have a lot of time this evening to do a proper screenshot post, so will just link to the page with a quick description and see if anyone else can reproduce. In a clean profile, all NS defaults, go to m It goes to a noscript redirect message style page - - reports...

Re: Primitive file infector for Borland Delphi proggies

The "biter" I meant in luntrus' quote was banking trojan writers, not MS - - at least not this time :-)

a number of banking Trojan horses (that are often written in Delphi) infected by Induc-A.

Re: Primitive file infector for Borland Delphi proggies

Ah, I got sucked in there. I registered to test and found that uploading is filtered for new registrants. Looks like it's another Worth startup.

Re: FireGestures and NoScript

Hi,
If you mean toggle "temporarily allow" the combo is CTRL SHFT backslash.
A user can't toggle NS itself on the fly. It has to be turned off in the Addons Manager dialog.

Re: Polypack- should initiative be vilified?

Maybe doesn't detect any enclosed in particular - but fudges and just correlates a particular packer with malware in general. Sort of a packer signature.
Or did this test single out the packed item by name?
