If you have a BT wireless router/modem you might have noticed a strange PC server called Thomson sharing on your network. Apparently, the router is running an undocumented version of Samba and sharing out the USB port as a network drive. I can’t find any actual documentation to verify this.
Apparently, this router was, as of firmware version 6.2.6B vulnerable to hijacking via a cross-site scripting attack (which NoScript would ostensibly prevent). *sigh*
I’m sure the author of NoScript would argue that the internet is broken the *other* way around and its a far lesser evil to do the extra clicking. But I’ve just come to my wits end with trying to figure out why, so often, I’m wondering why a button doesn’t click or menus are NOT MENUS. So I’ve disabled it for now until my life gets ruined by cross-site scripting.
