    An issue has been discovered in MS Outlook (All
    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.

Erm... do you *want* to admit to 'discovering' this? ;-)
