  1. Comodo offers a tool to verify that the webpage you access is actually
    operated by the website you ASSUME to be hosting it :giddy: :angel: :grinthumb :approve:

    for detail information and FAQ, see Comodo Verification Engine documentation

    That's cool. So it protects against malicious redirection or against stuff like changing the hosts file or pharming?

    Too bad Opera isn't in the supported browser list...

    only in an indirect way -- you can verify the page after you've clinked thru a link.
    It works well on this site; every link validates on the T.S. logo in the upper left.
    When/if that stops, then one has reason to be concerned.
    Phishing links from email would be discovered by the logo not validating on the
    first page.
