I don't have too many issues with phishing, I can usually spot an attempt right off. I can only hope my wireless is secure enough to be a deterrent. I've got firewalls set up and passwords in place and my fingers crossed, hope it's enough.

If you can view it from where you are, have a look at this Interesting stuff. You never say never when it to malware etc, but good house keeping helps. I run AV updates everyday and as a rule, scan every two days and a deep scan weekly. If my browser starts up slowly, I run a scan as well. You running Hardware and Software firewalls?

I'm afraid I don't get it. What's a promotional ad for the BBC got to do with your post?

I think the content of the site might be dynamic and change periodically. Whatever he was pointing to may no longer be there.

The BBC iPlayer is a media portal that has content spanning several time allowances. IE, depending on the content popularity. Anyway, the link is still working, but perhaps it is a regional viewing issue. Other than that, I am at a loss as to what has confused you TAG!

I couldn't find anything related to your post either, but as you say, it may be a regional issue.

Second one should work. Shame if it does not, the piece on how the man in the browser works, and actually seeing a set up PC, being targeted was very interesting. The clip went through in intimate detail on what happned. Is a shame I cannot share this globally.

Found it on you tube. This is a must see

Both of those links lead to the same place. I tried running a search for 'man in the middle' as well and came up empty. But there is still plenty on the subject with Google.
