Could this code be abused...?

Post by luntrus » Sun Dec 13, 2009 2:20 pm

Hi forum friends,

I found up this piece of code analyzing a page for bad stuff:

Code: Select all

 <div style="position:absolute;top:0;right:0;width:20;height:64;text-align:center;padding-top:18">
             <font color="#ff6633" size=4 style="cursor:pointer;" href="" onclick="document.getElementById('ads3').style.visibility='hidden';">X</font>

Could this hidden code be abused by malcreants and is there some form of general NS protection?

Looks just like a pseudo popup (i.e. an absolutely positioned div overlaying the rest of the page, so you're forced to see the ad until you "close" it by clicking the "X" link).
Nothing malicious, as far as I can see.
