One of the Tutorials advises certain settings In IE security settings specifically to:
Navigate Subframes Across Different Domains - set to "Prompt"

Can someone please explain what to navigate subframes across different domains means. I have made this setting and now I get prompted regularly to allow or disallow this during regular brower sessions. When would it be appropriate to be suspicious and NOT allow this? :thumbsup:

thanks
Lynn :flowers:

Here is something I found, hope it helps.

From this site:
winnetmag.com

Navigate sub-frames across different domains: Microsoft introduced Navigate sub-frames across different domains to combat the series of cross-frame navigation attack methods that attackers discovered in IE 4.0. In this privilege escalation type of attack, a malicious Web site that currently executes in a more restricted zone tries to insert malicious code into a frame of a page from a trusted Web site. I recommend you disable this setting.
