We check the news




I was interested to read about the Punycode phising attack that relies on your browser rendering characters of multiple languages in a URL into a reduced Wester European character set.

So I actually tried it.



As I expected the results were not as shown on thehackernews.com website

Google Chrome 60.0.3072.0 canary (64-bit)  - OK

Microsoft Edge 40.15063.0.0 - OK

52.0.2 (64-bit) - Fail


Not Smug, just accurate

When we post something on our Blog, or to Social Media, or when we talk to you in Real Life, we do our level best to check our sources,  and if possible really test the claims.

It's an open question to everybody else then.

Do YOU?
