Well, I got good news for you Gyig
Not only is Java fixed (and no need for signed applet or the associated security popup/confirmation), Realplayer method has also been thoroughly reviewed, as to cover realplayer11 on Linux (and 3rd party plugins like gecko-mediaplayer) as well
Moreover, new methods have been implemented in (unreleased) standalone version, namely MediaPlayer (WindowsMediaPlayer/mplayer/flip4mac) and QuickTime, and thoroughly tested both on Windows (IE7, IE8, and Firefox-3.x) and Linux (Firefox-3.x)
There's also a possibility of (mis-)using Adobe Acrobat (as I've discovered from my R&D), but it remains a bit too noisy to be useful in this MOD. iTunes too, but that's nothing to worry about, as what can be done by iTunes can be done by QuickTime as well, without the noise. And in any case, if one has iTunes installed, then one must have QuickTime as well (it's a requirement)
As to why the standalone version is unreleased, you may ask; well, two main reasons:
1. TerraFrost has not publically released standalone version which includes XSS methods (revised) and the original (unrevised) Java applet.
2. For the sake of the effectivity (and existence) of this MOD, I do not wish to attract much public exposure to the techniques employed (which take advantage of plugins' inherent privacy weaknesses) as to avoid likely stirrup of 3rd-party plugin vendors to make it harder for us to use. Ethically, I do not feel guilty about it, as I do not perceive this as a security issue, rather a privacy issue, which can well be avoided using other solutions (such as TOR+torbutton - although this MOD is also able to -selectively- block TOR users if the board admin deems necessary).
Also, I've replaced the old (occasionally problematic) standalone-installer with an updated one that uses UMIL (phpbb's new standard for installers), and to make installing/upgrading a breeze. This has yet to be tested, however.
So the project is very much alive - see svn on our google code project, I just got sidetracked with some some major revision and testing to fix whatever bugs (or unforeseen exceptions) I may find, as well as making what's already implemented (especially XSS methods, Java, RealPlayer) more stable & reliable. Then I'll be adding the new techniques that I developed, and releasing a new revamped release.
And thanks for giving me a chance to rant, again
