Google, Microsoft and Others Team Up To Develop Anti-Phishing System [washingtonpost.com]
Google, Facebook and other big tech companies are jointly designing a system for combating email scams known as phishing.
To combat that, 15 major technology and financial companies have formed an organization to design a system for authenticating emails from legitimate senders and weeding out fakes. The new system is called DMARC — short for Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance.
DMARC builds upon existing techniques used to combat spam.
