e-gold Users now have additional protection against "phishing attacks", thanks to a ground breaking upgrade to its Account Sentinel™ (a.k.a. AccSent(tm)) arsenal of account access security features.
Using DNS blacklist data published by well known third parties, AccSent now blocks account access from IPs identified as open proxies, insecure web servers, or otherwise open to exploitation by criminals. For the sake of brevity, e-gold refers to such blacklisted IPs as "blips".
As always, the AccSent advantage is that e-gold Users need not take any action - or even understand what an IP address, an open proxy, or a phishing attack is - to immediately benefit from this innovative new feature. However, as powerful as AccSent is, the best protection against phishing and other criminal attacks is user education. For this reason e-gold urges its Users to carefully read and practice the Security Recommendations published on the e-gold.com website.
