Default Phishing: Huge security risk

Phishing is a very security flaw in the internet today and could result in financial/identity loss. I would recommend you download this toolbar:

http://news.netcraft.com/

Do not let this happen to you. I know this has happened to one person and the consequences are not pretty. He had to change everything at his bank, and someone already got the information putting charges on his card.

You just contradicted yourself, you ask for his evidence, yet you have none.

Congrats on making yourself looking like an idiot. *clap clap*

Actually no. I'm asking for evidence. All I said was I heard good things about this software. And it seems to me to be decent.

Also I don't contradict myself.



Also I reported your post. Ad hominems are not tolerated.

IMHO if you believe that a bank would send you an email asking for your credit card number (which they already know)
you account number (which they already know)
or you pin number (which they already know)

then you deserve to get ripped off.

Or you can go here and get Spoofstick for both Firefox and IE free, without all the other rubbish that is on the Netcraft toolbar...
