Hi Giorgio,
When I cleared the history of Mozilla FF, visiting on startpanic.com didn’t yield any result. The bug lifts information about visited website from the history. Isn’t it? Is IE also susceptible? My IE 7.0 gets hanged whenever I visit startpnaic.com and click Check. Why?

@Nilesh:

Yes. More precisely, attackers can tell if a certain URL is present in your history or not (they’re using a list of 100,000 to be impressive).
>>Is IE also susceptible?
Of course it is. Every modern browser susceptible.
>>My IE 7.0 gets hanged whenever I visit startpnaic.com and click Check. Why?
Because its JavaScript interpreter sucks?
