Default Fake browser inside real browser - space saving UIs are not secure

https://textslashplain.com/2017/01/1...line-of-death/

Quote:
When building applications that display untrusted content, security designers have a major problem— if an attacker has full control of a block of pixels, he can make those pixels look like anything he wants, including the UI of the application itself. He can then induce the user to undertake an unsafe action, and a user will be none the wiser.
