There is Javascript that isn’t malware? I learn something new every day.

(Apologies to the Angular guys in particular - I just couldn’t resist the snark.)

Why did you conclude the dress Javascript wasn’t malware?

Sadly, it looks like run-of-the-mill mouse button handling code.

I could donate some malware I recently de-obfuscated to the screen printing company, if that would help. I keep getting it in my spam box.

My birth-announcement was a punch-card:

I approve of this dress. But Perl would have been better, as it comes pre-obfuscated already. Especially if you put a lot of regexes in there.

Just 3-4 years ago I had to expend great effort to get a client to drop “IE 6 Support” as one of their requirements.

They finally had a gentle talk with one senior VP and our billable-hours dropped dramatically.

I thought it was cute, but Ms. Redux was unimpressed: “I wear Erlang or I wear nothing at all.”
