You could be describing the linked article or m.slashdot.org itself, which is agonizingly slow and unusable on my old iPhone.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
This may have come too late in the comments for anyone to see it, but if the exploit is active on your system, adding a key to ARDAgent's Info.plist makes the problem go away without disabling ARDAgent altogether. (Whether or not ARDAgent is a security vulnerability itself is another story.)
That "YES" is not a typo; setting it to "NO" does not fix the problem. AFAICT this makes osascript expect that ARDAgent will implement more of its own AppleScript handlers...which of course, it doesn't.
P.S. I searched for other, similar problem setuid apps, and turned up check_afp.app (which someone else posted already) and, surprisingly, GoogleUpdaterInstaller. Fortunately, even though these apps run setuid, they won't respond to the "do shell script" attack.
i.e. the process of demonstrating that it works exercises the application into overwriting its Info.plist file and obliterating the edit.
