RE: FW: Need some help: IDEAS, Inc.

this is NOT a good solution, since a successful phish attack
in this case
would look exactly like the official red cross web site.

How's that one work?


One form of DirectNIC's redirection, which the phisher was supposedly using
(I didn't check myself), uses a <FRAMESET> to hide the redirect inside a
frame, thereby not showing the real address in the browser without deeper

Another form of their redirection service is simple 30x HTTP code
redirection, which they could have used for the "Red Cross remedy".
Personally, I'd prefer registrar lock myself, as that keeps the distinction
between scam and non-scam clear. (USRC's own scam-like tactics used when
disasters have abated notwithstanding.)
