Safari Pop-Up blocker

[ #15964 ]

I enjoy pop-up/under/sideways free browsing using Safari's built-in pop-up blocking. Until today! I read that Kellie Waymire died. It said she was on Six Feet Under, which I watch.. and couldn't place who she is. I guess she was some recurring hooker that I don't remember at all in the show. Anyways, I was searching for a photo of her, which I couldn't find many.

Anywho... I went to and all of a sudden.. a full screen pop-up! I closed it, made sure I had blocking enabled (which I did, of course).. reloaded.. and there it was again! Seems like they get around the usual JavaScript pop-ups which Safari blocks.

How? They have a JavaScript called from an onLoad, which submits a form with a new target. Pretty sneaky sis.

Safari is basically all I use, so I'm not sure if this gets around other pop-up blocking technolgies or not.

Loading... please wait.
  • Auto form submission in onload seems at least as dangerous as!
    • Firebird: 1
      Safari: 0

      Yeah, this is a good way to get around a blocked open(). I sent a bug report to Apple via the Safari bug report tool. See if they do anything.

      I also wonder what fun XSS things can be done with this.
  • Yeah, it took me awhile to find a picture of her, too. I don't watch the show anymore (unsubscribed to HBO), but once I saw a picture of her, I remembered her character: she was the one Brenda was giving massages to, who got Brenda thinking about doing more sexual experimentation. Your favorite character!
    • Oh yeah!!! I totally forgot who she was on the show.

      Damn Brenda. DAMN HER! I really dislike her.
