SPAM & PHISHING
--Earthlink Toolbar Warns of Fraudulent Sites
(29 September 2004)
In an effort to help people steer clear of phishing scams, Earthlink has
released a toolbar that will warn users before they link to known
fraudulent sites. While the toolbar does not block email containing
links to the sites, the warning will pop up when users click on those
links. The toolbar works with Internet Explorer versions 5.0 and later.
