Re: Security issue in Microsoft Outlook

How is this different than making just a normal link? 

Example:
<a href="http://www.cybertrion.com";>http://www.foo-labs.info</a>

Am I missing something here?

across.

How does it work:

Lets compose an email in MS Outlook, lets type


http://www.cybertrion.com & put a space after it to
make it a link. Now put your cursor just before
cybertrion & type any URL for eg:
http://www.foo-labs.info now send it to anyone. The
receiver will see the URL as http://www.foo-labs.info
but when he clicks on it it will directly take him to
http://www.cybertrion.com

I am not sure how critical this is but it can fool
alot of people & result in download of a virus.
