If I got an email from george@avoid416scam.com claiming to protect my bank account from 416 scams for free if I give him access to my bank account, I'd be suspicious.

Instead I got a website from whitehatsec.com claiming to provide me a more secure web browser for free, claiming it's perfectly safe to put in my bank account info into it.

Won't touch it with a barge pole. My spidey sense is tingling for one reason or another.




But with Chuck Norris [1] on the board, how bad can it be?

Well it is Whitehat Security, so the website is not really a negative I would say.

But I agree ;)
