Re: Verified By Visa
I think Verified By Visa has been replaced by ClickSafe, or at least it has by LloydsTSB;
The last few times I've performed transactions via a site which used to use Verified By Visa the payment has been checked and authorised automatically without me needing to enter the password.
I just hope I can remember what my password is if I'm randomly asked for it in a few months time... ;-)
Does anyone know if Firefox's NoScript and/or the fact that Hotmail blocks links from unknown senders/possible spam would provide any protection against this?
... that the warning message resembles a scareware-type alert.
"Your computer is infected! Click this link to be taken to our website..."
How is the average user supposed to be able to tell the difference? What if malware was created to display a warning which resembled the genuine message and direct users to a site where they were encouraged to download scareware to remove the infection?
Oh well, nice try anyway I suppose.
All I can say is...
... I want one, and I've emailed a less-than-subtle hint to my other half regarding Christmas!
... seems to block this attack. Does this mean I don't need to worry about it?
