Higher performance and lower system impact

Anti-phishing protection improvement

New program modules are based on protection against homoglyph attacks. A homoglyph attack is a method of deception where an attacker tries to fool end-users by replacing characters in addresses with different but similar looking characters. For example, emails that appear to come from your bank may try and direct you to a spoof website.
