I've been accessing my site with firefox with no problems www.nickbrianwalters.com, but recently was informed by an IE user that it pops up a phishing alert. I've reported to MS's phishing team that my site is in fact not phishing, but would any of you know why my site would trigger such a response?

We've had cases of sites being hacked (not necessarily Geeklog, but some other script on the same site) and used for spam and/or phishing. Are you running anything else on that domain?

bye, Dirk

geeklog is all I'm running on the site. In fact I've changed almost nothing on the site except allowing myself(root account) to place any code I like into a story.

The good news is that I've reported the problems to Microsoft and they've removed my site from their list. So I no longer have the alerts reported for my site in IE.
