Thanks for the info. I use Netcraft, too, although just for phish
reporting -- have a couple of hits on previously-unreporting phishing
URL's to my credit, although their real champions have dozens, scores.
Netcraft also has a current story, dated last Monday, about a new
criminal phishing exploit against three banking websites belonging to
banks in northern Florida. They actually got into the banks' websites
and were able to redirect customers to a spoof page. A guy I know does
Net security professionally, and he's been telling me for a couple of
years to stay away from online banking/investing, to do it the old way,
with letters and check redemptions and signature guarantees signed by my
He also warns against WAN's and LAN's, although I think he's okay with
PAN's because of their small footprint (although a couple of Israeli
security consultants did manage, a couple of years ago, to pull the
first Bluetooth spoof ever, on a subway car, getting close enough to a
Bluetooth-enabled PDA to do an interrupt and hijack the PDA session).
