The internet is broken again...

A piece on The Register  discusses how two well-known security researchers have scrapped a talk discussing some interesting new critical holes impacting anyone using a web browser. They cancelled following a request from Adobe - whose software is affected by the problem.

Intriguing - is this some Javascript exploit or something new and disturbing?

To protect yourself against this vulnerability you can disable scripting and all browser plugins - but that kind of sets you back to 1993.....
