Yet another browser spoofing bug, affecting Mozilla, Firefox, Opera, and Konqueror, but not Internet Explorer. This uses international character sets to display a phony address in the address bar. Test your browser here. Until a fix is available, don't follow links from untrusted sources to banks, eBay, PayPal, etc. Always use your own bookmarks -- or type the address yourself -- to visit such sites. —brad
P.S. Windows users should not be complacent: Microsoft just released eight "critical" updates. Get patchin', folks.
