Click-jacking update

Firefox’s NoScript add-on will disable the vulnerabilities to an extent, at least; the update earlier was from an Israeli security researcher.  Cat out of the bag, the rest were revealed.  What do I mean? the original researchers, Hansen and Grossman, were persuaded by Adobe not to let the secrets out until a fix was available.  The second link will allow you to peruse and become paranoid, if you like.

The problem?  Ever play games on, say, Pogo? like chess?  With Firefox and NoScript, you won’t.  A great many of the things we take for granted on the Internet today are also implicitly security vulnerabilities.  Bear in mind that nothing is actually secure at this point unless you want to go back to Morse code.  Oops, that’ll be illegal soon; the telephone companies need the bandwidth.
