IE7 Anti phishing – to make you stop and think what you’re doing…

Wow!

I’m totally impressed with IE7’s handling of suspected phishing sites…

I was catching up with some blog reading this moprning using IE7 beta when I noticed a new yellow warning shield next to the address bar.  (I was on the blog page reading one of the archived entries).  The warning shield denoted that this site may be a “Suspicious Website”. so I followed the link to give feedback on the site.  There was a simple click option to say whether I believed it was a phishing site or not, and that’s it.

Neat…

There are other links referred to on the feedback page that you may want to have a look at…
