Very bad, 'new', standard/browser exploit. Affects virtually every browser.

This was in the GameHavoc forum the other day. I thought I should pass it along so anyone else who uses FireFox (or any other browser, really) can know about it as well.

Basically, there is an exploit that allows sites to be 'phished' very easily, however there is a work-around in Firefox and the Mozilla Suite.

As an example of how bad this really is, check out one of these links (mouse over, click, copy and paste, etc): http://www.pа or https://www.pа

To disable this in Firefox and Mozilla, enter about:config in the address bar, search for network.enableIDN, and set it to false.

Read the thread for more information.
