  1. I've been a paid user of Malwarebytes for many years. Around 2004 I did a ton of research on Windows infections. Javascript on web pages was shown to be a huge percentage of the infection vectors. And considering that I scan email-attached documents with VirusTotal before I open them in a Sandboxie instance, javascript appeared to be the pretty much the only way I'd ever get infected. So I installed NoScript in Firefox and I've been using it to severely limit javascript for the last decade. I've never been infected, that I know of, and I scan often with Eset and MWB. Over the years, though, more and more sites don't work without javascript. In the last year it has gotten to be a big problem. I'm starting to move all my browsing into Firefox in Sandboxie, so I can run javascript, but this is a terrible solution because everything (bookmarks, etc.) get dumped at the end of the session. So I'm looking into the javascript question again. I'd love some feedback. 1. is javascript still a huge hole in security, or has it somehow become 'safe' to allow web pages to run javascript? A quick scan of the Malwarebytes forum shows a lot of javascript malware. 2. Does anyone have an opinion of Sandboxie, or should I just give up, and run a Linux VM for my browsing? 3. If I don't allow javascript in my browser, is there any way to get infected by just browsing?
