RSA says "no technological solution to phishing"

"Uriel Maimon, senior researcher in the office of the chief technology officer at RSA, said that technology solutions could never provide a cure for phishing and online fraud because technical fixes could always be subverted. Such measures also depend on the end user to operate and, as such, are vulnerable to error or incompetence."
Maimon also rejects "education" as "possibly the least effective method of stopping phishing." His preferred approach: law enforcement, and lots of it.
