New IE Bug Hides Real Site Address

jerrytcow Gotta love microsoft's response (683 comments)

Microsoft did not set a timetable for its investigation, but said it may eventually release a patch to address the problem. Meanwhile, the company recommended that people follow basic security procedures, including the use of firewalls, software updates and antivirus software.

How many people are going to give their credit card/bank/paypal info to these sites thinking they are safe because they have norton antivirus or zone alarm running. They are basically telling people not to worry when this is a huge security flaw - the only way to be safe is to type the URL in instead of following links.
