    Ummm...unless the definition of PHISHING got changed very recently, it's a lot like the Irish Virus.

    Phishing is an attempt to get you to send personal data to a site that isn't the one you think it is. Lioke when you get an email (from E-Bay, say) asking you for your username, password and CC info because they need to 'rebuild a server' or somesuch.

    Like e-mail worms coming in via attachments, I was under the impression that education of the user was the only prevention.

    It will be interesting to see if this gets more than two favorable reviews...thanks for the link.
