Full Screen Unclosable PopUp

http://hackademix.net/2007/08/07/java-evil-popups

Found this one thanks to Slashdot.org
If you’re not reading Slashdot, then you should. At least once a day.

Anyway, this is a full screen, unclosable popup with no controls and no way to interact with it. Thats the bad news.
Now for the good news. If you’re running Firefox with the NoScript plugin, then you have nothing to worry about as the NoScript plugin does a fantastic job at killing this and almost every other annoyance I’ve come across on the Internet.

In case you don’t have them, get them.
FireFox
NoScript
