Links to a site that asks you to log in with you Microsoft credentials. Do you think this is a serious matter for the average user?
I do!!!!!!!

For the average user, probably quite serious, I guess. In my case I never click on links in emails (I'm not just talking about MS links). However, if it looks likely legitimate, I will copy the link and paste it into my browser's address field and check it from there. I'm confident the security I have in place, as well as a dose of common sense, will handle any issues. I also have http disabled in my email client.

Ideally yes, they should be detected, but when you've got over a million phishing sites being created each month I can understand why security vendors are unable to do so.
