    Those links are also taken from DNS protective (eg Norton).
    The links will be active phishing but a short time.

    If you do the test with WOT in Chrome extension you will notice that it blocks only 1/5 (with WOT in Firefox are 5/5).
    With TrafficLight Chrome are blocked with 3/5 (with Trafficlight under Firefox are 0/5).

    The first 2 links are also fairly recent phishing still active the second is listed as MDL.

    WOT, SiteAdvisor and some more = feign security.
    Firefox has already built-in.

    better security is to enable javascript on event (with noscript), disable java and pdf view in browser (via plugin).
