When browsing to a site that has an active PayPal donate button with IE 7 a box comes up saying that you could be visiting a Phising site, I have tracked this down to the PayPal button on an http page .... put it on a https page the warning does not appear.

I contacted Microsoft in Reading (UK local office) and spoke to someone and they confirmed my findings.

Not sure how easy it will be to implement a Geeklog site as secure as my knowledge how to do this under PHP is zero.

Follow up to this it seems it is a IE7/Vista thing - a couple of other GL sites with PayPal buttons throw up the same thing on IE7 / Vista but not IE7/XP.
