updates.

Description :

A Secunia Research advisory reports :

Secunia Research has reported a vulnerability in multiple browsers,
which can be exploited by malicious people to spoof the content of
websites.

The problem is that a website can inject content into another site's
window if the target name of the window is known. This can e.g. be
exploited by a malicious website to spoof the content of a pop-up
window opened on a trusted website.

Secunia has constructed a test, which can be used to check if your
browser is affected by this issue :

A workaround for Mozilla-based browsers is available.
