Rash Of Phishing Attacks Use HTTPS To Con Victims

Thanks Google:
...“The crux of the problem is this green lock and what people think it means. It means the connection is encrypted, not that the content of the site is safe,” Aas said. “Browsers are over-promising. What we need is content awareness.”...
Not sure how this happens:
Phishing sites abusing SSL and TLS certificates is nothing new. Last month, a report by The SSL Store said last year 15,270 free SSL certificates were issued to sites that contained the word “PayPal” in the domain name or the certificate identity. It claimed 97 percent were issued to phishing sites.
Surely PayPal has someone monitoring their trademarked name.
