Phishing detection – Firefox is cool

After reading this post on vowe I was encouraged to see how good the PayPal Phishing attack was. And I must say appart from the address you are redirected to this is an amazing good replica of the original PayPal site. The amazing thing: Firefox (I am using version 2.0.0. 5 but I guess this was started in 2.0) colours the entire screen purple so the user does not enter any sensitive data. If the user does not click “Get me out of here! Ignore this warning” Then the user is automatically redirected to Google.com
