    candel Catch Phishing Sites With Hostname in Title bar [


    It happens with many people when they got cheated by various phishing site which steal their username and password, these phishing sites are created by hackers who make the design of the site so much identical as the original site.

    How does a people got cheated by Phishing Sites

    Normally, it happens when people got links via instant messengers from their friends who already got infected by the virus on their PC, so when the user who receives that link, click the link they got landed on page which look like their social networking sites like orkut, facebook etc

    After seeing the look and feel people just enter their username and password with checking the actual URL of the site displayed in the address bar

    Hostname In Title Bar is a cool add on for firefox which displays the actual URL or the hostname of the site on the title bar of every site you open in firefox. (as shown in the image below)

    After installing Hostname in Title Bar extension in firefox you will see the actual hostname of the site displayed in between the two as # Hostname #

    So, make sure to check the hostname of any suspicious site you connect with by clicking a link, as the phishing site which may look like orkut will not have the domain name www.orkut.com instead it will have some other name as the hostname.

    Note: As Hostname in title bar is in sandbox edition so you will need to register before you can download
