JavaScript exploit

2010-09-21 17:34:03.143226+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

I have been pretty cocky about the Flutterby system's ability to keep malicious code out of user entered stuff, but I should probably re-evaluate that, especially in light of this: the Twitter JavaScript exploit that circulated and was fixed this morning.

I think the difference is more culture than code. If one of "us" did it, we'd show off something kewl, and then email you about it.

And if someone maliciously did something here, the skilled retribution would be horrifying, and wonderful, to see.
