    Young people need new hobbies :D Seriously though, I'm convinced there is this world-wide effort by the dev of Noscript to get people to use it :D Have you ever noticed damn near every new attack is prevented by it?

    Lol :D

    Outside of Noscript, which most people aren't going to use, what other methods can be used to avoid this stuff? If it's going to rely on a trojan, then it's likely to be stopped by HIPs or even anti-malware/anti-virus software. Or am I way off base here?

    That's why I've decided to use it again, albeit differently with more convenience. Covers the weakest link in my security. Related extensions, and the browser's own Javascript functions should work as well.
