This won’t help adoption of Microsoft Silverlight!

OutlookMy brother sent me this screen shot, so of course I had to go digging around – I mean, this isn’t a phishing site!

Below you can see a larger view of the "phishing site" warning.  I’ve seen this on a few sites before – but never on my own!




phishing So what causes it?


oddly enough,

it is Microsoft!

Really.  Look at the top post on my blog (as of this screen shot – or the post just before this one)

There is an embedded "Channel 10" video from Microsoft.

And it wants to install Silverlight.




If you already had Silverlight installed you wouldn’t see this error.

So basically, Microsoft is warning users that a piece of Microsoft Code is making my site look like a phishing site.

Poor form.


And yes, I did extensive testing of removing this post, having Silverlight installed vs not installed, etc.

The only way I can replicate the phishing warning is if I have Internet Explorer view this post and do NOT have Silverlight installed.

Fix, please?
