Some of you who have been following my blog over the last 3+ years may recall me talking about Content Restrictions - a way for websites to tell the browser to raise their security on pages where the site knows the content is user submitted and therefore potentially dangerous. In reality I’ve been talking about this for close to 5 years privately with the Mozilla team - back when their offices were about 2000 square feet and the entire office smelled like feet. Ahh, those were the days. Well, we are creeping very close to seeing Content Restrictions (now named Content Security Policy) in reality, finally! Thanks in huge part to Gerv and Brandon over at Mozilla.
In unrelated news, I did a podcast with Dennis Fisher over at Threatpost on some of the RFC1918 issues I discussed a few weeks back and Slowloris. If you’re interested, please feel free to have a listen!
