    I was curious what anti-phishing software/s are you using. Mine at present I uses SpoofStick and EarthLink Toolbar... ;) :rolleyes: but still, I was wondering then that maybe there are some other softwares that are much more better that what I am using. :D :cautious:

    SiteHound my favourite -- firefox version inexpected.
    SiteAdvisor
    Cloudmark beta -- so, so

    First 2 may not be antiphishing strictly. have used Netcraft and Trustwatch toolbar but not impressed. There is another named, trust toolbar, it is rouge I think.

    No anti-phishing software installed. As nickr states, common sense works for me.

    I also use "Common Sense", and if you practice safe hex, phishing should not be a problem. And besides, I think all these anti phishing toolbars can be a major privacy threat since most of these tools track all sites that you visit. Of course there are other ways to track this down (and I´m not doing anything illegal besides searching for serial keys perhaps) but why make it that easy for them? o_O

    I oginally got Desktop Armor to block all web bugs, which it does perfectly. So the anti phishing and all the other things it protects against, and the tools are a complete bonus. Of course common sense doesn't hurt either !

    . . .

    helps you prevent worms, hackers, or other malicious programs from invading your computer

    protects you from Phishing Scams that try to trick you to give out your bank login, credit card, etc. Protect yourself from identity theft!

    protects your privacy by blocking "Web Bugs": tags that are invisibly included on web pages to track you.

    has tools to easily look at all the programs that will start when Windows starts, to let you see where the space is being used on your hard drives, and more!

    And many more. There are dozens and dozens of different settings that Desktop Armor watches to protect you.

    None. I get no spam or phishing e-mails whatsoever (I've been using the sneakemail forwarding service for years, and never actually gave my real e-mail address to anybody) :p

    None.

    Just what is left of the brain after too much computer exposure.

    Common Sense here also. Although every now and then I am curious to see where the links lead and to try and give them bogus info. But when I do that I always setup a Rollback snapshot and after playing just get rid of the snapshot.

    Happen to run NOD32....a byproduct is it removes some phisHing.

    Else...updates to my browser and e-mail software, as well as common sense.

    I use the CallingID toolbar (http://www.callingid.com/), which I find to be the best anti-phishing toolbar in existence. But then again I work at CallingID so I'm not exactly unbaised...

    If anyone has any questions about CallingID, Phishing or Anti-Phishing toolbars, I'd be happy to answer.
