Given the syntax of this function, wgBreakFrames can only have one of
two values: true or false.

I'd be interested to see some POC that would show how you would exploit

The first thing to do is abuse the variable.

How? You'd have to find some way to inject code into the javascript "stream". If you can inject code into the site, it won't be because that variable exists. It will be because something else isn't properly evaluating input.

In addition to true and
false, try 3, 0 , -37, "Cabbage", and maybe "true) and
(my_evil_function()))". See if you can force it to throw a syntax error
that creates a 404 page or something that contains *other* input you
control, especially if it finds its way to an eval().

Even if this is true, all you would have then is an information disclosure that might lead to some other compromise path. But all the code is already available to the attacker, so he/she ought to be able to read the code and find the exploitable condition without doing all that extra work.
