Title: Frame spoofing while window is loading
Impact: Low
Announced: July 17, 2007
Reporter: Ronen Zilberman and Michal Zalewski
Products: Firefox

Fixed in: Firefox
  SeaMonkey 1.1.3


Ronen Zilberman and Michal Zalewski both reported that it was possible to exploit a timing issue to inject content into about:blank frames in a page. When opening a window from a script, it is possible to spoof the content of the newly opened window's frames within a short time frame, while the window is loading.
