The inimitable Phil Lenssen points us to Google's whitelist and blacklist of phishing sites, which ostensibly help Google Toolbar identify sites that try to steal your info.

Some of the URLs on the blacklist are pretty devious:

  • bankofscotland.co.uk.systemupgrade.uujjkk7.st/customers.ibc/
  • chase.com.update-profile9025.com/
  • ebay.de.bwtm.us/
The whitelist and blacklist are part of Google's safe browsing for Firefox, an extension that alerts users to phishing and spoofing.
