    Hi,

    Short from visiting actual phishing sites (not a good idea because they sometimes have nasty surprises) there isn't any easy way that I can think of to "test" your anti phishing defences.

    What is Norton's answer to your excellent question?

    FWIW, ost of these services are based on a blacklist of reported phishing sites.
    Sort of like someone has to get burned and then report it to Norton. The other way is for the filter to use logical means to try to "detect" phishing behavior.

    If you had a test PC you could go to a known site and see what happens with you test?
