There are several steps you can take to help protect yourself from these and other types of attacks. Read about them at:

Very interesting Repa

I didn't know that I could Double-click on the yellow Secure site lock icon on the status bar and it would display the security certificate for the site.

Learning something new all the time...

Thanks!!!
