No. The researchers implemented a proof of concept in javascript but it is an issue with AMD's L1D cache predictor. This is a side channel attack similar to many of the recent Intel ones. Why you assume it is at all similar to making javascript malware infected clone sites in 1998 I have no idea. You seem to have just seen the word "javascript" and failed to read any further.
