    I've recently had two different clients call me in the past 24 hours reporting a red screen saying  this website has been reported as unsafe. It seems to be only on IE.

    Hi shae,

    Most probably they use the phishing filter of IE. I do not think that this is a problem of our platform, because the filter is a feedback system. There is also a bug in the filter that Microsoft are going to fix shortly. In accordance to Microsoft

    The Phishing Filter (Safety Filter) is a feature designed to help warn you if certain websites appear to be obtaining your personal information and it is not recommended that it be turned off.

    The Microsoft Phishing Filter is both a feature of Windows Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Live Toolbar as part of Windows Live OneCare Advisor. It is designed to help protect you from fraudulent Web sites trying to steal your personal information.
    Phishing Filter helps to protect you in two key ways.

    It operates in the background as you browse the Web, analyzing Web pages and determining if they have any characteristics that might be suspicious. If it finds suspicious Web pages, it will show a yellow warning, advising you to proceed with caution.

    A reported phishing Web site has been confirmed by reputable sources as fraudulent and has been reported to Microsoft. We recommend you do not give any information to such Web sites.

    You can immediately submit a request for a correction. Microsoft Phishing Filter has a built-in, Web-based feedback system in place to help customers and Web site owners report any potential false warnings or blocks as quickly as possible. In Windows Internet Explorer 7 or Windows Live Toolbar, from a yellow warning, click Report this site as safe or from a red warning, click Report that this is not a phishing website. This will take you to a feedback page where you can indicate you are a site owner or representative. Follow the instructions and provide the information on this site to submit a site for review.
    Once a dispute is submitted, a team of graders inspects the site in question. All disputes should be submitted through the Web site reporting process to ensure the quickest resolution.

    All the best,
    Ivan Dimitrov
