They do it with Active X. Javascript doesn't have access to the OS. Safeguards have been put in place when the language was created. Same goes for PHP on the server side. Not true with VBScript invented by Micro$oft. If you instantiate a VBScript in an IE browser, you have virtually all the power in the world to effect damage on the target's OS. I can install anything I wish on your computer, I can erase your hardrive, and or list the contents of (and copy) any file I wish. How is it done? Active X. In combination with VB Scripting (which get's run directly from the IE browser) and Active X, your computer is a play-thing for a skilled programmer.
