New IE8 Features for Anti-Phishing

The next version of Internet Explorer 8 will have new features to protect people from phishing attacks. Some of these features were developed by CMU's very own Serge Egelman. Nice work Serge!

Some highlights include:

Better warning messages (based on our past work on warnings in web browsers [PDF])
Better heuristics for detecting scams (I'd be interested in learning more about how these work)
Anti-malware support
