Beware of new exploits by our wonderful friends in the phishing community.

according to a Lead Developer at Mozilla (Aza Raskin) 

There is a new phishing exploit attacking you without your knowledge. Tab Nabbing. We all now use tabbed browsers to do most of our web surfing. Its fun its easy and it feels somewhat efficient.

What this does is takes over or creates a new tab to look like or mimic another tab for example Gmail even though the url is completely different it looks and it feels like Gmail. So you enter in your credentials and now you have been phished.
