Submission + - The Java Popup you Can't Stop (hackademix.net) 1

An anonymous reader writes: In his brand new hackademix.net blog, Giorgio Maone, known as the author of the NoScript security extension for Firefox, reveals how popup blockers can be easily circumvented using Java. Worse, popups opened this way are really evil, because they can be sized to cover the whole desktop (the wet dream of any phisher) and cannot be closed by user (the wet dream of any web advertiser).

Impressive demos available, all cross-browser and cross-platform, in the best Java tradition: "Write once, hack anywhere" (WOHA).
