Description

A class of bugs affecting many web browsers in the same way was discovered. A Secunia advisory reports :

The problem is that the browsers don't check if a target frame belongs to a website containing a malicious link, which therefore doesn't prevent one browser window from loading content in a named frame in another window.

Successful exploitation allows a malicious website to load arbitrary content in an arbitrary frame in another browser window owned by e.g. a trusted site.

A KDE Security Advisory reports :

A malicious website could abuse Konqueror to insert its own frames into the page of an otherwise trusted website. As a result the user may unknowingly send confidential information intended for the trusted website to the malicious website.

Secunia has provided a demonstration of the vulnerability at http://secunia.com/multiple_browsers_frame_injection_vulnerability_tes t/.
