Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2016-06-06 04:10:46 UTC
Security researcher Jordi Chancel reported a method to spoof the contents of the addressbar. This uses a persistent menu within a <select> element, which acts as a container for HTML content and can be placed in an arbitrary location. When placed over the addressbar, this can mask the true site URL, allowing for spoofing by a malicious site
