There are a number of arms races going on, hackers, spammers, etc. This one’s about popups. Some folks figured out how to use Flash to get around Firefox’s pop-up blocker, and thanks to a post on Steve Holden’s blog, I see that someone had figured out a config change to combat that.
Sheesh next thing you know people will be cracking Windows Genuine Advantage, and the figuring out a new hack when MS fixes that one. Like that’ll ever happen..*L*
