Vulnerability: IE address bar characters into a small feature 
My IE 8 on the address bar will automatically enter the url of the "\" (0x5c) transformed into "/" (0x2f)
Example: www.securitylab.ir \a Converted to www.securitylab.ir/a
Recently found that some phishing sites take advantage of this feature to bypass some security checks, it is hereby to be a mark
