Popup Trouble : First It was Firefox now IE

As if Firefox problem was not enough, now Microsoft Internet Explorer Pop-up Window Title Bar Spoofing Weakness has been discovered.

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.

The popup problem includes Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 SP2.
