Phishing

The number of phish type emails I've been receiving is just amazing. Everybody seems to be at risk. I just got one for Western Union for the first time. I get ones for Ebay all the time. It's always some sort of fake security leak and you need to verify your private information.

The scary thing is that people do click on them and fill it out. I saw Microsoft was making anti-phising filters in to the browsers now but I figure an arms race will ensue just like the one in virus software.
