Today afternoon I got a mail from HDFC Bank saying “Your HDFC Bank Account Need Authentication To Keep Your Account Activate Otherwise It Will Get Blocked”. In the first look only I got some doubt about the email. There was a link to login to HDFC Bank account. When I put mouse over it, it was pointing to some other IP address. This is what exactly the mail was:
To investigate further I clicked the link & the page I got was exactly same as of actual HDFC login page.
To digg more about that IP, I removed all subdirectories from URL & entered only IP. Now I got really shocked! It showed up a web directory with two directories, one for HDFC & another for ICICI Bank! Check ICICI Bank’s page from same IP below:
If you have noticed one thing in this post, first screen shot was taken from Mozilla Firefox, other two are from Internet Explorer 7. You know why? Firefox instantly showed that was a fraudulent URL! but IE don’t have such feature.
That’s why whole world says Firefox is more safer than IE. If you still want to use IE, you can install MC Afee site advisor. I tried same URL with Site Advisor enabled on IE & Site Advisor successfully found it fraudulent & landed on it’s own page saying site was improper. It’s always better to use Firefox. Get Firefox Here
