Firefox Anti-phishing addon

WorldIP is a Firefox Geo Add-on with security features and advanced network tools, anti-phishing mechanisms and protects against DNS spoofing and fake sites. It provides also all DNS records for a domain, the real location of the web server, the country and extended information about the datacenter.

WorldIP provides the following information:
– all IP addresses of the server (IPv4 and IPv6), Reverse DNS, web-server
– all DNS entries for domains (A,AAAA,MX,NS,SPF,TXT,SOA,CNAME,PTR), their TTL
– real country, flag
– data center, provider, autonomous system (AS)
– your external IP address, ISP and change log (by time or when changing proxy)

– ping and traceroute from all continents (around 40 servers worldwide). Advanced traceroutes with three protocols simultaneously (TCP/UDP/ICMP)
– ping and traceroute from your computer
– links to Looking Glasses of 43 global providers (by provider name or by country/city)
– whois, BGP connections on bgp.he.net

– verification of compliance of the website with the IP address, protection against DNS spoofing/DNS hijacking. These attacks are used by different viruses and trojans, some unscrupulous providers, governments and security agencies.

DNS attacks redirect legitimate traffic to a fake website, or when proxying traffic in the Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attacks for different purposes such as
– stealing passwords
– listening to internet traffic
– providing falsified information
– intercepting online banking transactions
– for censorship
