    Link correction

    Oops, the phishing link in the second paragraph should have pointed to anti-phishing.org [anti-phishing.org]. It was a mistake I missed during checking, in that instance there was no intent to deceive.

    And note that if you have your ICANNWatch prefs set to show the actual root domain name of a link following that link, a la SlashDot, as in:

    example.com/page.htm [example.com]

    the code is smart enough to show the actual destination, not the apparent one, that is, the link:

    http://icann.org@www.icannwatch.org/ [icannwatch.org]

    should be followed by [icannwatch.org]. Perhaps such a function could be added to email clients to unobfuscate incoming email. Of course MicroSoft's email clients would never have it because it will no longer be seen as necessary, and if they did decide to add such functionality it would probably take a few years. -g

    The Mozilla browser actually still supports that syntax, at least in the version I'm using.

    URL syntax is allowed

    User #3840 Info
    But the syntax
          http://user:password@site
    is allowed in the URI specification RFC (rfc2396).

    The problem with IExplorer was that certain character inside the URL (hidden right after the '@' sign) causes that explorer doesn't showed the rest or the url, even in the address bar or the body of a mail message !! So, the crackers could use that character to hide the real server.
