Jeremiah Grossman sent me a link to his blog where he went into more detail about the FireFox extention revealer. He built upon mine quite a bit and got a much better version of it working. His has gone beyond the basic proof of concept and is much more useful and quicker from what I can tell. Here’s a link to his post.
It still feels like there are a lot of vulnerable plugins to research. IEView was not the only one, I promise you that. I’d be curious to hear if anyone is actually doing research on the extentions themselves, now that we can detect them.
