First phishing and now something called pharming which apparently clones the url frpm dns servers and when you type in the url of the site you want to get to, it redirects your private info to these buggers/criminals etc. can't find a suitable description that is sufficient to demean them. Any way, just read this this in Cnet. What do we have to do to protect ourselves? I guess its up to the ISPs and site Hosts now.
From information I've seen, Internet Explorer 7 looks like it's borrowed the "good" bits of Firefox and other browsers and inserted them into the old IE. There doesn't appear to be anything truly innovative about it
