    That's why NoScript exists. It's default whitelist mode is a great layer of security and privacy.

    It was a spammer that spread through social engineering. No buffer overflows, XSS, XSRF etc..

    I'd rather keep jscript and just use common sense. Malware has been spreading like this going on 3 decades..
