A similar issue was shown when Adobe Flash fullscreen was first introduced (I think it was just Macromedia at the time, but anyway).

When you went to fullscreen in flash, it printed a giant "you are now in fullscreen mode" in the middle of the screen, but somebody showed that simply by printing similar text all over your screen, it hid that warning very well.

Yeah but nowadays you can't use the keyboard while fullscreen in Flash do prevent this type of phishing.
