StarForce Class Action

This complaint (thanks Ant and Digg) outlines a $5 million class action suit being formed by Christopher Spence against Ubisoft for using StarForce copy protection in games. Here's re-spellchecked bit from the summary on this all from Kotaku:

Starforce DRM can compromise Windows operating systemsí security. Any virus or trojan can control a computer by and through the StarForce DRM installed on the computer, despite the security measures taken in newer versions of Windows.

Users receive no notice that removing StarForce DRM is necessary to prevent possible security compromises on their computer systems. Worse, removal of a StarForce Title does not always remove StarForce DRM software.

var shitlist = new Array("Riley Pizt", "Hellbinder", "dsmart", "Cheese", "Kootur", "Zephalephelah");

LOL imagine going through life with a "shitlist" that right there is sadness in itself LOL

You dont contain the power of "self control" so you must write your own filter LOL tardlicious!

While I am on the subject of lame code..

var shitlist = new Array("Riley Pizt", "Hellbinder", "dsmart", "Cheese", "Kootur", "Zephalephelah");
// find all the links
var d = window.document;
var links = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
// go through the shit list
for (l=0; l<shitlist.length; l++) {

You do not check for failure to allocate the Array before you dereference it
