CVE-2014-1483

Security researcher Jordan Milne reported an information leak where document.caretPositionFromPoint and document.elementFromPoint functions could be used on a cross-origin iframe to gain information on the iframe's DOM and other attributes through a timing attack, violating same-origin policy.
