This morning I received an email from a potential customer saying that when they arrived at the checkout IE7 flagged my site as a phishing site.
Needless to say they headed the warnings and didn't pay.
I've installed IE7 RC1 on a clean install of Windows XP and tested the site, sure enough IE7 RC1 declares it as a potential phishing site.
I've checked others of my sites that are using the exact same checkout and they have not been flagged as phishing, so it's not a coding problem. I've also looked at a few friends sites and low and behold some of them are also showing as phishing sites, like me they were completely unaware of their sites as being flagged.
I know for sure that I've lost one customer today and while IE7 is only a release candidate the number of people using it should be low, however once it is released it will be an automatic update for SP2 users as I understand it, therefore how many customers will I loose.
Not to forget the potential damage to my sites and my reputation.
I've reported the mistake to MS but so far no word.
Have you checked your sites in IE7 with the phishing filter enabled, if not I would?
Does anyone know how to avoid a site being flagged?
