Cascading Style Sheet Is Such a Hazard to Your Privacy: 1990 CaseProves It.

Cascading Style Sheet [.css] is such a hazard to your privacy. It allows
others on the internet to see your monitor and files. It allows them to
copy images on your monitor to their computers. It also allows them to
copy files from your computer to their computers. It is dangerous. Avoid
at all costs.

CSS isn't stored in the victim's computer. Instead it is stored in the
perpetrator's computer. What it does is it reads everything on the
victim's screen and checks on the victim's visited web pages and can
even read text from any text or word application being used by the
victim. CSS is not a security risk and does not trick the victim's
computer into sending info to the perpetrator. However, this is an
extreme invasion of the victim's privacy. The victim has no idea that
he/she is being violated. The assailant can read text and see any
pictures that happen to be on the victim's monitor without actually
accessing the victim's computer.

Your computer may not be at all damaged or touched. However, your
confidential information can easily be read by the attacker and anyone
the attacker gives it to. You don't have to download anything, visit any
website, or even use a browser to be attacked. You just need to be
connected to the internet and the attacker can strike you.

Once again, the victim's computer does not store any part of CSS. All
info and software is stored in the assailant's computer.

Such an attack occurred in Switzerland on September 9th of 1990 causing
a massive amount of fear and psychological dissociation in victims.
These victims now suffer from PTSD as a result of the psychological
trauma caused by the invasion of their privacy. Such victims
continuously have nightmares and terrifying flashbacks of the case.

It's a fact that CSS leads to dissociative fugue states. It's extremely
scary.

So once again, avoid CSS at all costs.

Too bad there wasn't anything such as Cascading style sheets in 1990, not to
mention the general public didn't have much access to the internet at all
and ther was no world wide web.

Actually, the www existed as early as 1985 when the first official domain
name was registered.

I don't know when CSS was actually first used, but it is possible than it
it's early stages, it was scary to use. According to the wikipedia, css was
in use in the '70's.

Given the date of the incident, anything could have happened while someone
was online. After all, windows 1.0 was just beginning to live. So you had
what? DOS as your OS? Was it possible for someone to know your private
information without you knowing they had it? Who knows? But from CSS? Most
likely not. More than likely, such information may have been passed through
unreliable servers and even less reliable people who operated them.
