    Hi Guys,

    Why is 'Spoofstick' valuable when the latest FF & IE have anti-phishing built in?


    Thanks
    Rico

    The anti-phishing tools built into FF and IE are mainly blacklist of phishing sites. They might miss newly created phish sites. On the other hand, Spoofstick displays the domain where you really are. It will defeat all phish attempts based on domain spoofing.
