I notice they're now claiming that the "personal assurance message" is
the approved way to ensure that VbV dialog box is genuine.
Surely it's fairly trivial for a site to send a (hidden, bogus)
request to VbV and scrape the personal assurance message that comes
back, then display the message in a phishing dialog to get the victims
Or is the VbV system secure against this attack? I still feel
uncomfortable with it.
