The Threat That is the Internet
Using a set of common, well known building blocks, it will soon be possible to construct a worm that attacks the Internet, spreading by user contact (i.e. every page they visit), and which creates havoc across the Internet, rather than the relatively limited scope of worms such as Samy (MySpace) and Yamaner (Yahoo! Mail).
The fact that the script continues to run in the original window and then referencing a known parameter of the new window is nothing new. It is not a vulnerability.
