Submission + - E-Bay's Sign-in system can assist phishers

Pedahzur writes: "A phishing e-mail I got the other day highlighted scary new phishing technique: using E-Bay's own sign-in server to assist in the phishing. It seems the login screen will redirect to any URL after the sign in procedure. I contacted E-Bay, but received only the boiler plate reply. More details at this blog post."

Marvelous! The super-user's going to boot me! What a finely tuned response to the situation!
