Although the browser-in-the-browser (BitB) technique has been with us for a while now, it is far from what one might call ubiquitous. Simply put, the technique is based on displaying a simulated browser pop-up window (usually a login prompt) within the confines of an HTML page opened in a browser. The simulated pop-up may look almost indistinguishable from a real browser window and since it may contain an arbitrary URL in the simulated address bar, the use of the BitB technique for phishing can be quite effective, as most people have been repeatedly taught that they should “check the URL, and if it is the right one, the page should be genuine” during security awareness courses.
