IE's "SmartScreen"

seems that MS needs to change IE's "smartscreen" message from "this site may harm your computer" to "your computer is presently being infected with malware" (brought to you by MS and IE):

"Although the Internet Explorer SmartScreen Filter issues an alert about strangernaturallanguage.net being unsafe to visit, the warning rolled in too late as seen in the screenshots below. The Java / PDF exploits were already triggered BEFORE the Internet Explorer SmartScreen Filter blocked access to the site. Unfortunately this is not the first time I observed exploits slipping through the Internet Explorer SmartScreen Filter."
