iPhone 3.1: Mobile Safari anti-phishing features been moaned about
Mobile Safari gained anticipated anti-phishing features as part of the iPhone/iPod Touch 3.1 Software update just released at the Apple’s rock n roll event.
Security firm Intego however, is criticizing the inconsistency as actually being worse that if the feature hadn’t been included at all. A number of people have tested the anti phishing feature, some people were getting warnings for sites that others load just fine with no warning.
All that seems to be clear is that sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. This is clearly more dangerous than no protection at all, because if users are under the impression they are protected they will be less careful about which links they click. Source – iphonestalk.com
