SpoofStick -- To Keep Off Phishing

There has'nt been a day when our inbox does not meet at least one phishing or spoofing email claiming from some remote UK bank like Barclays PLC or eBay.  Nowadays, even HSBC spoofs have also not become uncommon. I came across a simple browser toolbar, supporting both Internet Explorer and FireFox that shows what website that we are currently navigating in, as a big bold green text.

So in case the link that has been clicked goes to a different website, then we can be sure before entering any of account-confidential information to the website. Download spoofstick for your browser from the following URL: http://www.spoofstick.com/
