It is a simple technique using very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects. Read more at HubPages." Link to Original Source top
In-depth walk through of the CSS :visited vulnerab
Fizzl writes "Yesterday I stumbled upon a comment here in slashdot, mentioning that you can use CSS to reveal information about your browsers history. I embarked upon further research. There are plenty of proof of concepts, but none which explain the problem in detail. After couple of hours of scripting, I had my own implementation of the exploit coded. You can have a look at my version at http://www.fizzl.net/. I decided to summarize my findings and give a complete run down of how the vulnerability can be exploited. You can read all about it at my blog." Link to Original Source top
Gah, sdwap was broken for god knows how long. I had forgot to enable sending of proper wap/wml headers after doing some tweaking. Sorry about that. Also, it was down alltogether for a period after reinstalling my server.
Slashdot.org changed their formatting. Therefore, I needed to rewrite the regular expression which extracts the content of the article. Also added 'The Dept' at the beginning of the article. Some changes to client detection too. Can't remember what I have changed since last release, and too lazy to diff:P
I finally got around and updated my Slashdot WAP converter. Now there is no need to use Googles html2wml translator anymore, albeit it is an option. Many thanks to Andrew Blyler. He coded and mailed me the original script which grabs the content of an article. I pretty much rewrited it for my taste. Based on my personal experiences, it does very good job at finding the right section.
