PhishGuard Pro Publisher's description
Detects and disables Phishing or Spoofing attacks for all popular browsers.
PhishGuard Pro detects and rapidly disables Internet Phishing or Spoofing attacks designed to steal critical financial data. PhishGuard Pro works with all popular browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox, AOL Browser, Mozilla, and Netscape. PhishGuard Pro is an enhanced version of the basic PhishGuard products, offering more frequent scam database updates and many new usability features. Phishing attacks use fraudulent websites and emails that mimic well-known organizations to trick unsuspecting Internet users. A simple login or account number entry screen becomes a trap. By assuming you are dealing with a trusted party, you can reveal financial information including credit card numbers, bank accounts, passwords, and social security numbers to the 'bad guys'. This type of attack is very difficult to detect, as the scammer's emails and websites mimic the exact style and graphics of the spoofed company. Sensitive financial information disclosed to scammers is used to make fraudulent financial transactions and to enable long-term identity theft. Once installed on your computer, PhishGuard Pro quietly monitors sites on the Internet that you visit with your browser. When you attempt to visit a harmful site, a warning window immediately appears giving information on when the site was discovered, and why it is considered harmful. You can still choose to visit that site, but we don't recommend it! The first person to discover a suspected phishing scam can report the offending email or URL, literally in seconds. There is no need to divulge confidential information to the scammers. Within minutes, our monitoring team has verified the scam, and added it to the ScamBase database. Updates to the database are rapidly distributed to every participating computer, immunizing them against the newly discovered scam. One year and unlimited time subscriptions include new program releases, priority scam database updates, and premium customer support.
