Javascript spam due to firefox vulnerability

Postby Hardy » Sat Jan 30, 2010 9:17 pm

As reported by The Register some Firefox script vulnerability forces unwanted IRC connections when exploited. EFnet`s server software blocks these types of requests sent by the browser so there is no disruptions for our users.

You would assume something like this would only happen with IE.
