Because the exact time is non-constant and unknown, multiple attempt are carried out. The failed ones are silently discarded using a try catch block. This is similar to Bug 343168. Both the 'frames[x].document.open()' method (described in above bug) and a normal 'frames[x].document' method are shown to reliably produce the exploit. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: See attached test case.
I can reproduce this with a current branch build, but not on the trunk.

It seems that the problem is this: The frame's location is "about:blank" while it is being loaded, and it is during this time that it can be spoofed (after the parent document has been loaded, but before the framed document has been loaded).
This was fixed on the trunk by changing the way we treat about:blank

I wonder whether we could at least port part of that (e.g. the default principal for subframes)... Not sure how easy that would be.

The trunk fix was in bug 332182. Looking at it now, it might not be impossible to merge to branch, if we're sure it doesn't break the web (which seems likely). Some of the code is sure to not apply, and we'd need to add interfaces instead of changing them, but it might be doable in general.... Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to do it in the near future. :(
I think it's a critical vulnerability, do I? It's very dangerous if someone using this exploit to steal accounts.. I really appreciate if you can fix this since next branch build..
This bug got some publicity and one bank tells their users to 'stop using Firefox until it's fixed and switch to IE6'. http://www.multibank.pl/co_nowego/aktualnosci?_a=15793
It is gaining in publicity. NIST's Vulnerability DB lists the CVSS Severity at a 10.0(High) http://nvd.nist.gov/nvd.cfm?cvename=CVE-2007-3089 All Fx users at my work got a message from our corp security team last week telling us to uninstall Fx immediately.
I've confirmed that this patch fixes the "exploit testcase" in this bug. I have NOT had a chance to do any other testing yet. In particular, I have not run it on the tests attached to bug 332182. It would be great if someone would, with all the various new-window pref settings (at the very least, with the settings to force all new windows into windows, tabs, and same rendering area). Note that the tests can be run with jssh; I think we have some documentation on mozilla.org for that. I'll try to get this also ported to the 1.8.0 branch.
I should also note that if run under jssh the tests will do the different pref values automatically... So that's really the way to go, imo.
Works with all the testcases from bug 332182 here, on Firefox 22.214.171.124+patch.
I'm basically gone starting today for two weeks or so. jst or Blake, could you drive this in? I don't have the 1.8.0 port done (or even significantly started), unfortunately. :(

Comment on attachment 269025 [details] [diff] [review] Backport of fix for bug 325816 and bug 332182 to 1.8 branch Looks good to me, sr=jst. I happened to spot one typo in surrounding code as I was reading through it, fix it if you want to: - In nsDocShell::DoURILoad(): // XXX: Is seems wrong that the owner is ignored - even if one is

In the interest of getting a Thunderbird 126.96.36.199 out ASAP to address the known problems, this spoofing bug will need to wait for 188.8.131.52 releases
