    Secunia, a security monitoring web site has found a way to trick people into giving "sensitive" information via a JavaScript popup. To fall for this trick, you have to click on a link, from a "malicious" web page that directs you to a website you think is secure and safe. See Secunia's report for a demonstration.

    If you surf the web with "caution" and a bit of understanding with a dash of common sense you most likely will not have to worry about this. Although common headlines read: "no browser is safe," "haunting flaw found," "browsers open to attack."

    There needs to be a web safety class mandatory for all publically schooled children. Get 'em while they're young! It wouldn't be much of a class. Maybe a few days. So many exploits and viruises prey on people's misunderstanding of the internet and how their web browser works.
