IE 7.0 and Phishing filter works quick!

This morning I received in my email yet another phishing scam. This one was for the Commonwealth Bank of Australia and clicking on the link showed a very professional clone of the website. The URL path was also well constructed with the full URL path prepended to the front of the phisher's domain name.

I was using IE7.0 on Vista and it went straight to the site. Interestingly no-one had reported it yet so I did. I went back to  the site less than 15 minutes later. Now IE reported the site as suspicious and a possible phishing scam website. Ive just gone back to the site now (less than 2 hrs later) and IE 7.0 now prevents me from accessing the site indicating that its a known phishing website.

Very impressed!
