Safari in iPhone is Vulnerable to Web Attacks by Hiding Address Bar

Safari in iPhone is vulnerable to web attacks that allow malicious websites to masquerade as trusted pages maintained by banks or other entities.

The vulnerability has been discovered by security researcher Nitesh Dhanjani. The weakness stems from the ability of web developers to display pages on iPhones that push the address bar out of view, with reference to Dhanjani’s blog post that demonstrates the problem.

Dhanjani made a proof of concept demo at his website with a fake Bank of America login page for mobile phone devices to stress the severity of this security issue in Apple’s iOS.
