Submission + - Scientists cure cancer, but no one takes notice (hubpages.com)

Fizzl writes: "Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have cured cancer last week, yet there is a little ripple in the news or in TV. It is a simple technique using very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects. Read more at HubPages."

Submission + - In-depth walk through of the CSS :visited vulnerab (blogspot.com)

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."
