Description Josh Bressers 2010-10-12 14:39:41 UTC
Security researcher Eduardo Vela N reported that if a web page opened a new
window and used a javascript: URL to make a modal call, such as alert(),
then subsequently navigated the page to a different domain, once the modal
call returned the opener of the window could get access to objects in the
navigated window. This is a violation of the same-origin policy and could
be used by an attacker to steal information from another web site.
