User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD amd64; en-US) AppleWebKit/534.14 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/10.0.603.0 Safari/534.14 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD amd64; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20101102 SeaMonkey/2.0.10 I have received a scam warning in a plaintext email, probably on the basis that a link wasn't what I seemed to be, which seems a bit silly to me since a plaintext can't hide anything and the link was auto-generated. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: This is what I think what happened: 1. the email contained the almost-link "url=http://127.0.0.1:<port>/service?wsdl" 2. the "http://127.0.0.1:" part became an auto-generated link to "http://127.0.0.1/" 3. the link was found linking to an URL different from what it did show and this activated the scam warning Actual Results: Scam warning. Expected Results: Auto-generated links should not be subject to the "different text from link" warning since, well, they are auto-generated and moreover a plaintext message can't possibly have "hidden" links or stuff. I can't attach the full email as it is work related and kinda private, but shouldn't bee to difficult to reproduce the problem including the URL I mentioned in the body of any mail.
Confirming with Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686 (x86_64); en-US; rv:184.108.40.206pre) Gecko/20101209 Lightning/1.0b1 SeaMonkey/2.0.12pre May be a backend issue, don't know how scam detection works. Funny thing, the bug mail also shows the scam warning ;)

I think this means that we basically want to port bug 362434 from TB, which - among other things - fixes this.
Bug 362434 is all in one JS file, but no one-liner (-58, +166). I wonder how easy the port will be… …Hm, for one thing, trying to "dumbly" apply the patch to the suite file of the same name (suite/mailnews/phishingDetector.js) results in all three hunks being rejected. Will need some more love.

Hello, Is this bug still open? I love to work on this bug. Can one of the mentors assign this bug to me? I hope to get it resolved. Thank you.

You might want to have a look at both of them. I'm not specifically a mentor, but I've fixed a few very simple bugs, and I love it when I see someone new willing to work on SeaMonkey bugs. I hope you won't find this bug too hard for you. ;-)
