This is the task force. The place to solve this is here.

It's not that hard to understand:

A webpage today is allowed to manipulate content it cannot see. It can 
make your bank-account page dance across your screen, but it cannot see 
it. Screengrabbing is like giving it a mirror. With that mirror, it can 
target and grab all your online information in a flickeringly short 
second. Explain that to people.
