Another Google Exploit Found
Search Engine Watch reports that Netcraft has found another opportunity to create fake pages for phishing, this time through the googlesyndication.com domain. While googlesyndication.com is a real google domain (it is used to deliver google's ads), it isn't google.com, and anyone who is going to give up their credit card number to it is probably just as likely to give it up to geocities.com/microsoft'srealhomepage.html. Netcraft blames the bug on Google expanding too quickly, thus multiplying the number of possible bugs.
