The "download bomb" trick is a technique that involves initiating hundreds or thousands of downloads to freeze a browser on a specific page.
Across the years, there have been multiple variations of download bombs, and they have often been used by tech support scammers to trap users on shady sites that tried to lure victims into calling a tech support number to have their browser unlocked.

Ever been to the Yahoo home page with all of its 'pushed' videos? Now THATS a D/L bomb. I have no fewer than 12 ABE customs on that page alone. _________________ Linux user #498913 "Some people need to reimagine their thinking."
