Firefox Will Warn If You Visit A ‘Hacked’ Website

Firefox Will Warn If You Visit A 'Hacked' Website
 
We all know very well that the well-known Mozilla Firefox is a faster browser, more efficient and, mainly, more adapted to what users are looking for. However, Mozilla Firefox wants to go further and alert users when they visit sites that have already been compromised or hacked.

Firefox Will Warn If You Visit A ‘Hacked’ Website


   Security on the Internet is a subject that increasingly worries users of browsers, who want to be protected and stay away from problems. If most already give security alerts to users, Firefox wants to go further and alert users when they visit sites that have already been compromised or hacked.

   Mozilla did a unique job of being able to give back to Firefox the capabilities that many have recognized over the years. It is a faster browser, more efficient and, mainly, more adapted to what users are looking for. There are many new features that the Quantum version has brought, thus ensuring that in a short time it can regain its prominent place that it always had.

   But Firefox wants more and for this, it prepares to have, in future versions, the ability to alert users whenever they visit sites that are identified as having been compromised. For this, will use information from the well-known site “Have I been pwned?“.

   For now, these alerts are not yet integrated with Firefox, but the work has already been started, and you can test it using an extension that is available on GitHub.

   The idea is to put this code directly in Firefox and have it as a native function. In addition to the alert, you can also subscribe to future alerts for notifications in the event of future problems.

   It’s too early to tell when this new feature will be integrated into Firefox or even if it will go into production in this browser. Everything will depend on the developments that are made.

   This is further evidence that Firefox wants to raise its offer as a browser, running away from what competition offers and giving news that others do not have.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
