Internet Explorer is reported prone to a pop-up window title bar spoofing weakness.

The weakness is reported to exist due to a flaw that manifests in script-initiated pop-up windows.

This issue may be leveraged by an attacker to display false URI information in the title bar of an Internet Explorer pop-up dialog window. This may facilitate phishing style attacks; other attacks may also be possible.
