Description (last modified by mikeperry)

running the decloak page http://decloak.net/decloak.html
attempts to download a Word document in firefox.
when i clicked "open with abiword" which was selected for me,
the document opened and decloak was able to get my ip address from abiword.
suggest adding a leak warning when people click downloadable links
or maybe (another option?) disable opening external applications or plugins upon download.
