Disguised URL's



I've asked this question in a Microsoft group but I'm wondering if
anyone here has a view, too.

Here is a signature block from a post made in the groups .............

microsoft.public.windows.inetexplorer.ie6_outlookexpress and
microsoft.public.outlookexpress.general

In this signature block, www.banthecheck.com resolves to
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/blogs/mowgreen/index.php?showentry=1564
if I click on the link.

I should be grateful if someone will explain how this is done.

Presumably any link shown in any post could be similarly disguised
and take 'the unsuspecting' to a fraudulent site.

Is this a correct assumption?

Thanks.
