From CNET News.com: Google has acknowledged the flaw and is working toward a patch for Chrome versions 22.214.171.124 and earlier when running within Windows XP SP2 systems, according to SecNiche security researcher Aditya Sood.
Sood disclosed the flaw on Tuesday and has since posted a proof of concept on the Bugtraq vulnerability disclosure forum.
"Attackers can trick users into performing actions which the users never intended to do and there is no way of tracing such actions later, as the user was genuinely authenticated on the other page," Sood said within the disclosure.
While Google is working on a fix, a representative for the Australian arm of the company pointed out that clickjacking can affect all browsers, not just Chrome.
"The (clickjacking) issue is tied to the way the Web and Web pages were designed to work, and there is no simple fix for any particular browser. We are working with other stakeholders to come up with a standardized long-term mitigation approach," they said.
