    Most secure windows’ weakest link

    by  • 12/17/2004 • geek • 0 Comments

    Big freaking surprise. The “most secure windows” is still open to holes that make it easy for phishermen to convince ignorant end users that they really DO need to enter their atm card’s PIN into the form on eBay to prove their identity. This is still the cross-site-scripting issue with ActiveX…. It’s about time you […]

    by  • 12/17/2004 • art • 0 Comments
