Here's a popular press description of the problem

which points to a test for it at  (They registered spelled with a Cyrillic "a".)  Ironically, IE doesn't fall 
for the spoof, because it apparently doesn't handle IDNs.  Of course, 
from a user interface perspective, browsers need to do something about

My browser doesn't warn me about yet, either.
