MS says “Don’t click on links!”

(via IP)

IE allows malicious websites to spoof legitimate sites in the address bar and status bar, so they suggest typing in URLs by hand:

“The most effective step that you can take to help protect yourself from
malicious hyperlinks is not to click them. Rather, type the URL of your
intended destination in the address bar yourself. By manually typing the URL
in the address bar, you can verify the information that Internet Explorer
uses to access the destination Web site. To do so, type the URL in the
Address bar, and then press ENTER.”
