Phishing filter and visual indication of EV SSL Certificate
One of my IE7 browsers had phishing filter disabled for faster web access without going through to US Microsoft's site for checking of domain against phishing. However, a problem arose. Whenever I accessed secure web sites (https://www.isaca.org/ or https://www.hsbc.com.hk/) signed with an EV (Extended Validation) SSL server certificate, the address bar could not turn green. On careful check, the problem was related to phishing filter disabled. So what should I choose, having green address bar of EV SSL or faster access without phishing filter ? I picked the latter.
