A Suggestion Update For IE8's Smart Screen Filter
Greetings MS,

I think that the Smart Screen Filter in IE8 is one of the best improvements
in computer safety and security technology. One suggestion that I have for
future updates of IE, would allow users to report an unsafe website by
entering the URL link in the Report A Website Form. Users should know that
currently, they must visit the website and than report it. The problem is
that once you visit a bad website, your computer may already be infected or
your personal identity may have already been compromised by the dangers if
phishing.

Interestingly the current version of Firefox 3.5.5 as of this writing allows
users to enter the URL of an unsafe site. But it only allows for the
reporting of phishing attacks. IE 8's technology is better because users
have the ability to also report malicious software. But a way should be
incorporated into IE 8's browser, where if users have had a bad web site
experience, they can report the URL without needing to visit the link in
question.
