Description

Kohei Yoshino reports the secure site lock icon can be spoofed by using a view-source: URL targetted at the secure site whose credentials you want to appropriate. An insecure page of the attackers choice can then be loaded while the lock icon shows the previous secure state.This could potentially be abused by phishers to make their fake login sites appear more authentic.
