    I use F-Secure Internet Security 2006 and as an extra I use a registered version of SiteHound on Internet Explorer.

    My judgement + Nod32 are probably enough.

    So far, common sense although PhishGuard is downloaded to desktop but might never be installed. ;)

    For those of you that like myself find this term "common sense" thrown about too easily, several Anti-Phishing whitepaper's are available for download from ....

    http://www.antiphishing.org/resources.html


    In addition ....

    ViewHEAD 1.0.5 allow's one to view hidden HTTP server response codes for a given URL, available from http://www.pc-tools.net/win32/viewhead/
    ID Serve, available from http://www.grc.com/id/IDServe.htm is another useful, simple-to-use internet server identification utility.

    I could not of course omit Proxomitron's mighty log window, which includes HTTP header messages sent between your browser and the internet,
    one of it's many useful feature's. :cool: Mind you these are NOT anti-phishing utilities in general terms but can aid in determining site authenticity.
    An understanding of basic HyperText Transfer Protocol coupled with P2K's brilliant ~ should be sticky ~ "The dangers of HTTPS" will help.

    As for my answer, currently NONE.

    I'm aware that anything is possible but rather than savy I would consider myself as paranoid with these matters. I can't be 100% sure, it is true, but I've been doing on line banking for 5 years, and my bank (any bank as far as I know) would never ask for confidential info through e-mails.

    As for E-mails in general, I open them in a virtual environment and save them only if I know where they come from, the slightest hunch that something might be 'Phishy', it's a quick reboot and gone forever (slightly time consuming, but safe).

    That's good to hear, but what do you do about DNS spoofing, Link Hacking, Man-in-the-middle, proxy watching and so on? It's good that you are careful with your emails, but slightly over 25% of online crimes are unrelated to emails...

    Not exactly an anti-phising tool, I use the Show-IP extension with Mozilla.
    Except for one e-mail account that's a deliberate spamcatcher, my e-mail is clean.

    Same here. One of the early alpha versions, but it's stable and reliable. And I don't believe I've ever seen any available upgrades for it. :cool:

    None actually, I turn off the one in Mozilla Thunderbird ...


    You see, in general, I don't use bank-cards, Paypal or whatever such service. And I rely on my knowledge, while additionally I am not paranoid in this area of computing; therefore, for instance, I rather use the Windows XP SP2's in-built firewall than a 3 party one, since I am quite content with its basic but robust and reliable outbound filtering and so on ...


    /EDIT: Oh, and I voted for the "Others...pls specify" option !!


    I use real-time AV's protection only when I am on-line (yeah, I am still on dial-up), I don't use various "anti trojans", "anti-spyware", "process-guard" etc. type of programs simply because when I used them, they didn't find/prevent anything in all the time. I even uninstalled Ad-ware and Spybot because I was annoyed by always scanning the system and finding nothing at all. In my case, they are a waste of computer's resources ...


    P.S. -- If you want to, see also this particular squash's post here on Wilders forums (the same "Pools" section) with which I totally agree ...

    I was a bit skeptical about SiteAdvisor at first but I guess it´s a nice idea (still don´t like to have a toolbar though) but I do like the Search-engines alerts, scandoo.com now also offers a similar service. Email phising is not really a problem for me, but a tool like Iconix eMail ID does sounds interesting. :)

    I myself use none, but I do have myWOT installed for the family PC.
    For the rest IE8 and Opera have excellent anti-pishing capabilities, nevertheless I have never been scammed before on the web except for not reading the EULA carefully:D

    BTW: Nice gravedigging catnotspam :D

    Other: I put my financial institutions into my host file, that way I jump straight there instead of using ANY dns server.

    Common sense is a good answer, however I also have fraudeliminator installed in IE which I rarely use nowadays in favour of Opera browser with 'fraud protection' enabled.

    OpenDNS here as well, and Opera which features like 2-3 Anti-Phishing engines alone + by now also HauteSecure if I got all things right (I'm sure about HauteSecure though ;)). :)
