Keeping us full of Mac facts De Prez Jim Hamm alerts us to an article on Safari’s new anti-phishing features. Too much to quote here you’ll want to look it up yourself, http://db.tidbits.com/article/9862
Jim checked to see if Chase, Bank of America, and Wells Fargo banks show the Extended Validation (EV) Certificate. Not finding it, he also looked at PayPal and Vanguard Mutual Funds, and the certificate did appear next to the lock icon for both sites.
Now that “phishing” is part of our computer vocabulary it’s a good reminder for us to check the sites we visit on the Internet. Better safe, than sorry. Thanks, Jim for giving us more food for thought.
