Versions) where anyone can fake a URL & send it

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

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