3Com is adding new anti-phishing technology to its TippingPoint line of IPS, or intrusion prevention system, products, the company said.

The new anti-phishing features are part of an update to the TippingPoint Digital Vaccine service. They combine system vulnerability data with pattern-matching to spot phishing scams.
For example, TippingPoint can determine if an e-mail message that might carry a phishing attack was sent by a phishing mass-mailer tool or if a given Web site uses proper link formats, according to Tod Beardsley, a counterfraud engineer for TippingPoint.
