Submission + - Javascript vs. the New York Times->

ColdWetDog writes: "As we've discussed earlier, the New York Times is about to throw up a controversial paywall. Apparently the wall isn't too strong and can be defeated with 4 lines of Javascript.

The Times paywall doesn’t launch in the United States for another week; the paper has plenty of time to plug this particular Javascript vulnerability, which goes by the name NYTClean, if it wants to. But the real question is: Is this a hole they really want closed? Or is this one of the intentional leaks in the wall?

I just got an email inviting me to access the site for free for the rest of the year. Seems like they aren't really serious about this and the whole implementation is pretty odd. I suspect a committee somewhere."
