i tried it in Firefox.. and it shows that Firefox is not vulnerable, the address bar does not show 'http://www.google.com'.. However, when testing in Internet Explorer, it shows 'http://www.google.com' and another website which is not google..

Interesting.. This is really serious.. People can set up fake websites collecting credit-card information or login details of some site.. I wish everyone would try it and see for themselves..

Moral of story? Trash IE. Get firefox/opera. Very Happy

That's amazing. I think this could really become dangerous, because it can also work if people are careful...

Anyway, I've been using firefox for a long time now, and I'm not going to change my opinion soon! Cool
