    Depending partly on bug progress the wording of this article will be reviewed and changed again. See "What happens when a page or file is blocked?": update when bug 1068656 is fixed

    Meanwhile I will defer Revision 105632 (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-does-phishing-and-malware-protection-work/compare?locale=en-US&to=117378&from=105632 diff) It probably is good to start a discussion before simplifying wording. For instance it is suggested to remove

    unless your security settings have been changed
    

    But many readers of this article may have changed settings. Possibly due to security related, possibly bundled software they are using. So in my opinion that wording is useful. Anther suggestion is

    fake but very real-looking website  imitation website
    

    but again my preference would be for the original wording that emphasises the reality of these fake sites.
