IE8 Security Part VIII: SmartScreen Filter Release Candidate Update

Hello, I'm Alex Glover and I'm the test owner of the SmartScreen Filter in Internet Explorer 8. The SmartScreen Filter helps protect IE8 users against phishing scams and sites distributing malware. In a previous post, Eric described the SmartScreen features and improvements over the Phishing Filter in IE7, such as anti-malware support, new user interface, and better performance. Today I'm going to talk about how SmartScreen works with other features to combat malware, and describe the changes we've made in the IE8 Release Candidate to help keep you safe.
