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."
