Description

Mozilla engineer Matt Wobensmith discovered that when the getUserMedia permission dialog for an iframe appears in one domain, it will display its origin as that of the top-level document and not the calling framed page. This could lead to users incorrectly giving camera or microphone permissions when confusing the requesting page's location for a hosting one's.
