A number of anti-phishing tools are now available. They are supposed
to warn web surfers when they are about to enter a phishing web site,
so they can steer clear.
Unfortunately, they seem less then perfect. Not only is one my own web
pages branded as a "known phishing web site" by one of these tools
(Norton Internet Security Online), but another tool brand a well known
phishing site as "verified".
For some screen dumps, and some random thoughts, see the following
Any thoughts on what the cause of why these tools fail to make
the correct call in the two cases I write about?
Any related examples?
I would be thankful if someone reading this has Norton Internet
Security Online (NISO) installed, could check out the following
and tell me if both are still flagged as a phish.
My current screendump from NISO is in Norwegian. I would like
to replace it with one in English. If someone with NISO
installed can be kind enough to mail me a a dump of the alert
it pops up when you try to access my "flash" page (provided it
still does) - that would be much appreciated. TIA.

Well, of course, this is one of the famous Norton malware packages.
Because the people are only selling something that gives a good feeling, not
actually provides security.
