    I assume you know what phishing is, but if you don't, it's basically trying to get sensitive - and particularly financial - information from people by impersonating a trusted entity in an electronic communication, typically an email.

    Lol, users using IE3 are really out of the loop! Haha

    I'd be surprised if, a user using IE3, even knows what PayPal really is -- let alone what the word "upgrade" means.

    But I suppose they're fond believers of, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." -- haha

    I get a ton of phishing e-mails a day claiming that there was some malicious transfers of money from my pay pal account... :mad: well it only shows that there are people around who actually fall to their traps :mad:

    At the end of that article, some serious embarrassment for Apple, with their Safari browser also failing on the EV SSL criteria.
