Just so you know we haven't hacked it yet but we can already launch custom javascript on the switch

    This is really nothing special... stop reposting it.
    Basically every browser has JavaScript... it's not an exploit, it's a feature of a browser.

    Yes but a lot of exploit can be done using javascript that's why i said it isn't hacked but it is the first step
    it is just to avoid reposting it every time someone want a link of it

    Well you could get root remote control on computers using javascript until things get patched on web browser, there have already been few zero days using javascript

    Just an example here on android
    http://thehackernews.com/2015/11/android-hacking-chrome.html
    but there are a lot more and the switch is as much vulnerable
    really javascript can be used as entrypoints

    Using a chrome / firefox extention called stylish that let you skin every website with your own css / javascript or with other users's
    and they have a theme database were you can search and install one for every website

    Think someone's gonna bypass the console activation for purchased games on the account would allow more than a single switch to be used for your purchased games

    if you are saying that then you really dont have a clue about anything

    also, not to you, but to everyone - please stay on topic thanks
    this thread isn't about twitter skins or whatnot.

    The comment goes to the reposting and the lack of any bit of context but ok.

    Mr. If you don't want to see how the sausage is made please just don't read and post in these threads before a public exploit is released. This is a work in progress, this is a first step. Heck there is even emulators written in javascript so at the very least, this could be a fallback way to run some libretro cores.

    But since you ask for examples, here is a whitepaper about a heap overflow in javascript. https://securityevaluators.com/knowledge/papers/engineeringheapoverflow.pdf (not saying this old exploit is possible in newer browsers, but you asked for an example)

    What I mean by this is every thing you have written in this thread is false or irrelevant.
