Re: Russia accused of creating "Cyrillic ghetto"

Gone fishing in Rochester:

Quote:
AR, Rochester, NY: Unfortunately, Cyrillic domains pose a security threat not just to Russian businesses. Since several Cyrillic characters (e.g. "A") are rendered exactly like Latin ones, it becomes very easy to create a fraudulent copy of a valid site and register it under a legitimate mixed Cyrillic/Latin address so that a URL link to it would look entirely authentic. Not many people will notice that a reference they received in an email message (e.g. http://www.chase.com") in fact contains a Cyrillic "a" in the middle unless their browser renders them strikingly different.
