I just downloaded opera and found that it now has a phishing filter. To test it, i went looking for a phishing archive.
That's how i made this cool find:

Disclaimer: please notice that this is a phishing archive. If you don't know what phishing is, please read this article first. Do not introduce any personal information in any site you find through this page, PLEASE!

What is PhishTank?

PhishTank is a collaborative clearing house for data and information about phishing on the Internet. Also, PhishTank provides an open API for developers and researchers to integrate anti-phishing data into their applications at no charge.


I found it very interesting because it allowed me to know how good opera's filter is (it's pretty darn good ;) ), and also to know exactly how this thing works.
I must say I'm impressed with the work some phishers put into these sites, some of them look really genuine!!
