    Look Out

    This is from Gizmodo and its a fascinating study of what happens when Phishers get a book on Javascript. Essentially, you go to the typical locked-down Apache site with lots of fake Paypal material. It asks you to click another link and then you get some sort of strange mini-browser that causes your main browser to auto-supply your email and password. I stopped the script before it could do any harm, but clearly they are piggy-backing on a real site here. I have received a couple of these emails and once i fell for it. I wonder if they got my paypal #. These guys are getting really good and everyone needs to be careful. Look at the meticulous skill of the site's craftmanship.
