Most Scariest Spoof ever

From Jeff Key's Blog
The latest thing the internet evildoers are doing to confuse your parents is called Visual Spoofing. Instead of faking URLs, these smart guys are faking the IE toolbars. Here's the deal: They launch a new browser window with all of the toolbars invisible and replace them with, you guessed it, toolbar images that contain a legit URL, SSL lock and so on.

Article is here. More info and an example of Visual Spoofing is on Don Park's Blog.

Scary, eh? Hope Microsoft notices it soon enough.
