shutdown demonstrated a way to inject content into a sub-frame of another
making the attackers content look like it was part of the victim site.
Similar in effect to MFSA 2005-51.
The victim site must first be opened in a new window (or tab) by the malicious site for this flaw to work. Do not enter a password or other sensitive information into a window "helpfully" opened by another site, always use the File menu option to open a trusted new window to which no other site has a reference.
