4am == sleep time [Jun. 9th, 2000|03:48 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
Man, I'm on fire tonight .... everything I set out to accomplish programming-wise I'm getting done. But sadly, 4am fast approacheth ... I think I'm going to have to force myself to sleep soon here. I think the coolest thing I did tonight was prevent any JavaScript from being used on LiveJournal ... this plugs a big security hole that affects all site with dynamic content. I won't give details (because I don't want to give anybody ideas before I'm fully done testing it myself) but don't worry --- it's fixed. It was never a problem until 3 weeks ago, and I've been scanning every few days to see if anybody had exploited the problem yet, but nobody has. (I'm kinda disappointed, actually ... it would've been a clever hack.) Anyway, going to program awhile longer, then sleep....

javascript embed quit working....is that related?

I was reading your bit about the javascript safety feature and was wondering if that has anything to do with the fact that my JS embed quit working?

I can type the customview.cgi address directly into the browser and pull up my journal, but the page with the embed is completely empty?

Well you see Brad I am not an hacker... a real good guy :) Until now I didn't thought about it... Maybe because I don't want to hack LiveJournal, as I like this service and don't want to do it any harm.

Damn I am too stupid :) What a Hack LOL...
