An upcoming version of Firefox will include protection against phishing scams, using technology that might come from Google.Firefox 2 to get phishing shield [news.com.com]
The phishing shield is a key new security feature planned for Firefox 2, slated for release in the third quarter of this year, Mozilla's Mike Shaver said in an interview Tuesday.
Then though it was passing the URL of the phish site and Ebay would redirect you to the phish site. It was pretty smart because you got an email with links in it and if you moused over the links you would see ebay.com in the URL and you would think it was really going there, and it would it would just hit the redirect CGI and send you off ebay and to the bad guys. I was keeping my eye on that method, Ebay has made it smarter now.
