  1. Windows Defender SmartScreen is blocking a small number of customers


    Hello,

    We have several dozen customers reporting that SmartScreen is blocking our website. We cannot recreate the issue, but have verified that the reports are accurate. We are asking customers that report the issue to take the steps to report it as a false positive using the instructions provided by Microsoft.


    Unfortunately, the problem is not going away, and every day we have a few more customers contact us. I have tried to contact MS, but I get transferred all over the place, and nobody knows what to do or where to send me for support.


    I can only hope that I'm just not looking in the right place because my CIO is all over me on this one... rightfully so.



    Thank you for reading my post.

    :)
