More false-positives

To add to AVG, CA and Kaspersky you can now add Microsoft! It seems that Microsoft's SmartScreen Filter, which is built into IE7 and IE8, labelled every site as a phishing site following an overnight rule change. Many of the affected sites have now been unblocked, but others remain labelled as potentially dangerous to surfers to anyone using Microsoft's SmartScreen consumer protection technology.

Well done Microsoft.
