50 Attacks: a.k.a. Why Not to Run Hot Java in your netscape (or other)
Hot Java code that, once started, takes and retains control
of the viewer. It includes hot buttons, etc. that let you use common
resources on the net, store favorite places, etc. When you push any
button in this window, it simulates Hot Java within its own code, but
all reads and writes contain code to restart the program (such as the
"remember favorite places" button, etc.).

Attack 17 - It uses spare time when you are not computing to
participate in codebreaking activities, including the

Attack 28 - Attack 4 from above, but it also changes the
costs on incoming information so that you can't detect the
price change in the process.
Attack 29 - Attack 5 from above, except that it is more
sophistocated -like creating misspellings or poor formatting
or moving the locations in maps so that when you push on
one part of a map, it sends a different part to ther
Attack 30 - Attack 6 from above, except that instead of
reporting servers down, it makes them seem very slow, or
misses lines of pictures,etc. tomake them look bad but
without causing trouble reports .
Attack 31 - Records all credit card transactions and forward
information to services that pay to know what you buy.
Attack 32 - Determines whether you look at dirty pictures

acid rock a few years back).
