Unresponsive Script Warnings

Postby Pradeep K » Thu Aug 18, 2011 9:22 am

First of all Thanks for the great tool. It really helps to analyze the malicious contents for research.

While using the tool for some URL's which has heavily obfuscated contents I've observed that it throws warning,

"A script on this page may be busy, or it mau have stopped responding
You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will

Script: chrome://jsdeobfuscator/content/jsdeobfuscator.js:312 /

Script: Script: chrome://jsdeobfuscator/content/jsdeobfuscator.js:167"

Extension version : 1.5.7

The dialogue box gives you two options either to "Stop script" or "Continue". Stopping the script results into accurate
de-obfuscated contents.

Firefox dev guide : http://kb.mozillazine.org/Unresponsive_Script_Error. Tried with increasing dom.max_script_run_time/dom.max_chrome_script_run_time
but in this case sometimes firefox hangs.

Is there anyway to suppress these warnings in the extension itself?

Sounds like JS Deobfuscator is adding massive amounts of text to the output window. Suppressing the warning should be the wrong course of action, it would be better to prevent this from slowing things down. Main question being: how to improve the performance here. Maybe it would be better to display text delayed, in batches...
