Here's a popular press description of the problem
which points to a test for it at Secunia.com. (They registered
paypal.com spelled with a Cyrillic "a".) Ironically, IE doesn't fall
for the spoof, because it apparently doesn't handle IDNs. Of course,
from a user interface perspective, browsers need to do something about
this, but I find it annoying that it's described as a "security flaw".
My browser doesn't warn me about g00g1e.com yet, either.
