Do any of these exploits require any sort of brute-force or CPU-intensive stuff which would be far easier with the massive improvements in JS performance? I wondered if new vulnerabilities might be a side-effect of the JS 'arms race' between Chrome, IE and FF.
Re: JS speed
CRIME is a side-effect. It's a side-channel attack that tries to determine the cookie by sniffing for encryption optimizations in the SSL/TLS channel. Compressing the channel to optimize transmission was part of the optimization rush, but it resulted in the side channel.
GROUJSN? Worst initialism ever.
