    Here's a popular press description of the problem

    which points to a test for it at (They registered 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 yet, either.
