+ - In-depth walk through of the CSS :visited vulnerab->

Submitted by
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."

Submitted by
Fizzl writes "There is an article on Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat web version about five US citizens who are seeking refuge from Finland. Provided here is an attempt at translation:

Five United States citizens are seeking refuge from Finland. They arrived to Finland from another Schengen-state ja applied as regugees in Helsinki-Vantaa international airport on tuesday.

The officials may not reveal the stated reason for the application, but according to present information the reasons are not connected to Iraq war.

It is most unusual that US citizen seeks reguge from Finland. Statistics of Office of Foreign matters show only one US citizen applying for refuge on 21'st century.

Iltasanomat was first to report this on their web version.
