I have mentioned<http://narkolayev-shlomi.blogspot.com/2010/01/defeating-frame-busting-scripts-one-of.html>that
Frame Busting code isn't bullet proof and also described

how it can be bypassed using "security=restricted" IE property, although

are some others techniques, like using event overwriting, etc.

Web application developers couldn't rely on X-Frame-Options headers and

NoScript, because not everyone uses IE8.0 and FF + NoScript.

Although, developers can check browser version using User-Agent header, and

the user came with IE8.0 (i.e.) use X-Frame-Options otherwise inject frame

busting scripts to the response page.

Kind Regards,
Narkolayev Shlomi.
