Programming i html: Frame Buster Buster … buster code needed on newest questions tagged html – Stack Overflow

Let’s say you don’t want other sites to “frame” your site in an <iframe>:

<iframe src="http://yourwebsite.com"></iframe>

So you insert anti-framing, frame busting JavaScript into all your pages:

/* break us out of any containing iframes */
if (top != self) { top.location.replace(self.location.href); }

Excellent! Now you “bust” or break out of any containing iframe automatically. Except for one small problem.

As it turns out, your frame-busting code can be busted, as shown here:

<script type="text/javascript">
    var prevent_bust = 0  
    window.onbeforeunload = function() { prevent_bust++ }  
    setInterval(function() {  
      if (prevent_bust > 0) {  
        prevent_bust -= 2  
        window.top.location = 'http://server-which-responds-with-204.com'  
      }  
    }, 1)  
</script>

This code does the following:

  • increments a counter every time the browser attempts to navigate away from the current page, via the window.onbeforeonload event handler
  • sets up a timer that fires every millisecond via setInterval(), and if it sees the counter incremented, changes the current location to a server of the attacker’s control
  • that server serves up a page with HTTP status code 204, which does not cause the browser to navigate anywhere

My question is — and this is more of a JavaScript puzzle than an actual problem — how can you defeat the frame-busting buster?

I had a few thoughts, but nothing worked in my testing:

  • attempting to clear the onbeforeunload event via onbeforeonload = null had no effect
  • adding an alert() stopped the process let the user know it was happening, but did not interfere with the code in any way; clicking OK lets the busting continue as normal
  • I can’t think of any way to clear the setInterval() timer

I’m not much of a JavaScript programmer, so here’s my challenge to you: hey buster, can you bust the frame-busting buster?
