The Shmoo Group has discovered a homograph attack in a number of web browsers:

This issue allows an attacker supply a domain name that looks like a common
name, but is an International Domain Name.  This issue would allow various
attacks to steal information from an unsuspecting vitim.

CCing caillon/blizzard. From bug 147397 it's really not clear how this has been
fixed and I couldnt find anything obvious in the patches. Also was an fc3 update
issued for this?
I'd say it's likely the mozilla fix to also fix epiphany but... I cant say for
sure without seeing the patch.

This issue has been fixed.  It was a mozilla bug, not an epiphany bug.
