Opening Phishing Holes with New Top-Level Domains

http://j.mp/Ntmm9N  (Ask Leo)

   "While the possibilities for phishing attempts leveraging the confusion
    surrounding domain names far exceeds just the potential ".bank" gTLD,
    that one has enough issues alone that The European Banking Authority
    has told ICANN it believes that proposed financially-oriented gTLDs
    such as .bank are dangerous and should be banned. Beyond simple
    phishing the concern here is that having a ".bank" domain might imply
    more - such as regulation and perhaps even legitimacy - to consumers
    than it would actually warrant."
