Facebook iFrames: Good For Business, Bad For Security?
When Facebook made a series of changes to its platform for applications and business pages in February, developers by and large cheered, but some security folks groaned.
I saw Ferguson's post shortly after it appeared and felt inclined to dismiss it, since at the time I was having fun experimenting with the possibilities of iFrame-based integration, including a WordPress plugin that exploits this capability.
But I heard the case against IFrames again last week in a conversation with Perimeter E-Security chief technology officer Andrew Jaquith. "Let's face it, iFrames are basically evil -- they always have been," he said.
