The flaw uses a JavaScript function called onMouseOver which creates an event when the mouse is passed over a chunk of text. We’ve seen the flaw being abused to launch simple pop-up windows, redirect users elsewhere (including porn sites), and we’ve also seen it used in combination with blocks of color, covering the true “intentionâ€

Yeah, it is too bad about Greg Giraldo. But I don't have any extra dough for his three kids. Cyberpass the hat.

I guess T&R were talking about it this a.m. but I didn't hear it. If I wasn't connected to the Stool, I doubt he replies (he'll be forever bitter about that voicemail...that I had nothing to do with). Now that he has, I hope to make this a long-running thing.

Seriously, coming back 9 minutes after one post to say "what's the matter? still looking up word I used?" and taking me to task for using word "dude" is fish in a barrel. I'm glad Toucher got onboard. He also goofed on me for word 'raconteur'---not knowing it's actually a nod to Homer Simpson, further symbolizes him being an out-of-touch old man who loves to complain about minorities.
