Description

Vitaly Nevgen reported that an attacker could replace a sub-frame in another domain's document by using the name attribute of the sub-frame as a form submission target. This can potentially allow for phishing attacks against users and violates the HTML5 frame navigation policy.

Firefox 3.6 and Thunderbird 3.1 are not affected by this vulnerability.
