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

another window.

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.
