Browser phishing technique (that FF2 is not vulnerable to)

Recommended Posts

Nomen    15

From the "older is better / more secure but they won't tell you that" department:

---------------

This Phishing Attack is Almost Impossible to Detect On Chrome, Firefox and Opera

http://thehackernews.com/2017/04/unicode-Punycode-phishing-attack.html

----------------

Firefox 2 renders the example URL (as displayed in the location bar) as this:

https://www.xn--80ak6aa92e.com/

Opera 12.02 renders the URL as a not-quite-right looking apple.com (looks like appie.com).

I don't have all the Unicode fonts installed so this might have something to do with it. :unsure:
