Now a days tabbed browsing is a de facto in the browsers and we simply love that. Now we don’t need to open a new window each time we want to open a new website.

So if you use tabs for browsing internet and leave your gmail or facebook account open in a tab while surfing other sites then you must know what the hell is Tab Napping.

It is just a simple phishing attack serving you the wrong URL.
