New Vulnerability Affects All Browsers

Follow link from untrusted sites (or untrusted email) can lead you to a hi-jacked pop up window even though it looks legit.

The fix for now is not to click links in emails and webpages that you don't trust. And always type the URL yourself for sites that you want to make sure that they are secured (like your bank website and/or PayPal.)

update: pic of the result that came up when I did the demo test from Secunia
