window.open checks the root-caller's security id.

("root-caller" is some script which is not invoked by

another function.) 

my function can be called by the FIND

dialog(RES-protocol page in MYCOMPUTER zone):

hijack this function:


and ask the user to search for something.

at last, FIND dialog calls



while using the CTRL+F dialog, i suddenly remembered


he stated: if time can change others, time can also be

changed be others. 

of course, i know the FIND dialog are calling some

methods in the main window obj, 

so window obj can also play some tricks. (yeah.

einstein is not always a loser. :-) )

and then thanks to "GreyMagic" for "GreyMagic Security
