Well, this week’s download goes a long with the phishing article I did a few weeks ago (Worldstart.com  the SpoofStick window toolbar plug-in will display a message that reads, “You’re on worldstart.com”.
On the other hand, if you are on a spoofed site the message will read something like this “You’re on 126.96.36.199″ When you think you’re on Ebay. Basically Spoofstick compromises the spoofed website showing you where you really are.
All in all SpoofStick is a great security tool that’s easy to use, and can potentially protect you from being scammed and taken advantage of. There isn’t a ton of help out at Core Street’s site but you really don’t need it. The program works with Firefox 1.0 and Internet explorer 6, although they are different downloads. You also want to pay attention to the FireFox version install—it’s a little different than what you may be used to, but it’s no big deal.
Once it’s installed, restart whichever of the two browsers you’re using and you’ll see it. Next to the display field for SpoofStick in your browser you’ll see the options pull-down—there’s only three things you can configure (size, color, and what it displays) none of which need to be tweaked in order to get the program to work, they are simply there for aesthetic purposes. Well, thank you Stephen for the heads up—nice program. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
