Last Measure is a shock site made in 2005 by the Internet trolling organization GNAA, also known as Gay Nigger Association of America. This shock site was created by Penisbird, who is one of the members in GNAA, which was displayed in the credits in the website.
The website was actively developed until 2010. There are plenty of variants of this website, as it is open source and can be downloaded and edited by everyone.
When visiting the original website, the Goatse Image is shown and then it will display one or more shock image which are usually pornographic and weird pictures, or horrifying medical photographs from Wikipedia along with an extremely loud looped sound of a man screaming "HEY EVERYBODY, I'M LOOKING AT GAY PORNO!" to alert people near you. A script on the website will also try to open infinite windows and massively use the "mailto" and "callto" functions, intending to cause the user's computer to freeze.
This website uses browser exploits and tricks such as the 'onmouseover' and 'onclick' functions to ignore pop-up blockers and spawn windows containing shock images moving around fast.
Some people say that variants were containing actual malware, but this could never be proved. Browsers such as Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, and other IE-based browsers are known to handle the website very poorly and may cause the entire device to crash.
Some versions use a script known as 'StatsMeasure,' which leaks the clipboard data to the Internet. Newer versions of the Last Measure used a Java applet known as 'CoffeeMeasure' that spawns a lot of Java application windows moving around the screen. The Unified X version of Last Measure contains a montage of shock images including The Pain Series and other images from various shock sites. Additionally, The external link was added to the Offended page.
Behavior of Last Measure
Due to all Last Measure versions' extremely malicious behavior, people who visit a site containing the script often think their computer is infected with a virus. Many internet browsers today may not execute all of the scripts or warn when some of the script portions are about to be executed, however, it may still cause temporary ruination. For example, on Safari it can still turn the browser into a fork bomb by opening mIRC and the default email client in a loop which causes the computer to slow down or even crash.
GNAA announced a new version of Last Measure called RubyMeasure, which is completely written in the programming language "Ruby", which would be released on May 2013. However, this version has never been released. (It has been 8 years since RubyMeasure was announced, but never released.)
