So your bank sends you an email saying that they need you to update your account info online.  Sure, the hostname seems a little funny, but the site looks legit.  They have all the same pictures and text...it must be official, right? 

Think again.  That site might just be a fraudulent attempt at Phishing, and before you know it, they'll have access to whatever account you were supposed to log into, and they'll be running amuck with it.

A couple of folks here at F5 have been working on a way to cut down on Phising attempts by helping those companies with our BIG-IP in front of their sites make use of the technology, and keep their customers that much safer.

Not only is it a good way to display the power of iRules, and give an example of some of the things you can do, but I like the idea of making the web a safer place, too. ;)
