After looking at the code for about a half hour, I still donít know what everything is, and exactly how itís getting past Google, I also donít know how adís are created, because Iíve never bothered to look at it. So Iím not sure, if this is something anyone could execute, or if Google is allowing it. So itís possible that there is a vulnerability in Adsense.

...the screenshot below the code, that Adobe was activating pop-ups through Google Adsense; of course this shouldnít happen, since Google doesnít allow such actions, in their ads. I went to check in out for myself, and got nil. I immediately assumed that it was limited to Mac, and went in search of the User-Agent check, and found it after about 5 minutes.

Curious Brett. Possibly Adobe is big enough to do what they want where lesser mortals like ourselves would be swatted.

Who really knows except Adobe? IMHO pop ups are generally counter productive, they tend to alienate visitors rather than convey a message. There are of course exceptions.

Have you ever actually looked at Google's code? It's absolutely atrocious!

Hmmmmmmm....

Adobe: "hey Google heres £20,000,000 can I have popups?"

Google: "hmmm seeming you gave me such a huge sum of money and your well reputed, why not."

Reputation + Money = Power, simple as that.

Adobe used javascript which did all the preemptive work in analyzing what your browser and OS, were, as well as if you had Flash 8, or higher, installed.



My response to intentionally messing with Google and Opera code... Goodbye Adobe.

As for the "getting around safeguards", my response would be to quit building back doors!

I know someone who operates a culinary site (no, not me :) ) who has run pop unders from Casale Media for years, and Google hasn't stopped her!
