if s00per.pink.h () xor is actually Mischa Spiegelmock i'll eat my two
week old tighty whities on youtoube.com

and about the claim that it is a fake:

The JavaScript issue appears to be a real vulnerability, Window Snyder,
Mozilla's security chief, said after watching a video of the
presentation Saturday night. "What they are describing might be a
variation on an old attack," she said. "We're going to do some
investigating."

i trust a girl named window more than a guy named pink

Nice to see that a group of idiots can turn a conference into a joke
just as easily as they can a mailing list.  Was there any technical
verification from the Toorcon guys before they accepted these asshats
talk?


http://developer.mozilla.org/devnews/index.php/2006/10/02/update-possible-vulnerability-reported-at-toorcon


The main purpose of our talk was to be humorous.



As part of our talk we mentioned that there was a previously known
Firefox vulnerability that could result in a stack overflow ending up
in remote code execution. However, the code we presented did not in
fact do this, and I personally have not gotten it to result in code
execution, nor do I know of anyone who has.



I have not succeeded in making this code do anything more than cause a
crash and eat up system resources, and I certainly haven't used it to
take over anyone else's computer and execute arbitrary code.



I do not have 30 undisclosed Firefox vulnerabilities, nor did I ever
make this claim. I have no undisclosed Firefox vulnerabilities. The
person who was speaking with me made this claim, and I honestly have
no idea if he has them or not.

I apologize to everyone involved, and I hope I have made everything as
clear as possible.

Sincerely,

Mischa Spiegelmock
