Internet Explorer 5.0 under Windows 95 (guess other versions are affected) with its default security settings allows frame spoofing. The problem is setting the location of a frame to an arbitrary URL without updating the address bar.
This vulnerability allows misleading the user he is browsing a trusted site, while in fact he may be browsing a hostile site which might be stealing information.

The code is:
function g()

Solution: Set "Navigate sub-frames across different domains" option to Disable

Demonstration is available at msfrspoof.html
