Submission + - HTML5 storage bug exploitable in Chromium, Safari, Opera, and MSIE. (google.com)

Dystopian Rebel writes: A Stanford U comp-sci student has found a serious bug in Chromium, Safari, Opera, and MSIE. Feross Aboukhadijeh has demonstrated (safe link: http://feross.org/fill-disk/) that these browsers allow unbounded local storage. Aboukhadijeh has logged the bug with Chromium (https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=178980) and Apple but couldn't do so for MSIE because "the page is broken" (see http://connect.microsoft.com/IE). Oops.

Firefox's implementation of HTML5 local storage is not vulnerable to this exploit.

firefoxy writes "Mozilla has officially released Firefox 3 beta 3. This release includes new features, user interface enhancements, and theme improvements. Ars Technica has a review with screenshots. 'Firefox 3 is rapidly approaching completion and much of the work that remains to be done is primarily in the category of fit and finish. There will likely only be one more beta release after this one before Mozilla begins issuing final release candidates.'"
