Thwart online scams with Microsoft Phishing Filter
57 million people in the United States alone claim to have been exposed to at least one online phishing scam. These scams typically attempt to lure you into visiting phony Web sites where your personal information or credit card information can be collected for criminal use.
Microsoft Phishing Filter helps provide dynamic protection against phishing scams as you visit Web sites in two ways. It scans and helps identify suspicious Web sites, and provides up-to-the-hour updates and reporting on known phishing sites. Microsoft Phishing Filter is available as an add-in for the MSN Search Toolbar at no cost, and will be also available in the upcoming Windows Internet Explorer 7.
