VULNERABILITY DETAILS
From /WebKit/Source/core/dom/ContainerNode.cpp:

----------------
void ContainerNode::parserInsertBefore(PassRefPtrWillBeRawPtr<Node> newChild, Node& nextChild)
{
(...)
    while (RefPtrWillBeRawPtr<ContainerNode> parent = newChild->parentNode())
        parent->parserRemoveChild(*newChild);

    if (document() != newChild->document())
        document().adoptNode(newChild.get(), ASSERT_NO_EXCEPTION);

    {
        EventDispatchForbiddenScope assertNoEventDispatch;
        ScriptForbiddenScope forbidScript;

        treeScope().adoptIfNeeded(*newChild);
        insertBeforeCommon(nextChild, *newChild);
        newChild->updateAncestorConnectedSubframeCountForInsertion();
        ChildListMutationScope(*this).childAdded(*newChild);
    }

    notifyNodeInserted(*newChild, ChildrenChangeSourceParser);
}
----------------

|parserRemoveChild| can run script, and it can remove |nextChild| from DOM or move the node around. When this happens, the tree will be in an inconsistent state after the |insertBeforeCommon| call, allowing an attacker to bypass the frame restrictions.
