We use our whitelist internally to exclude domains from blacklisting. If a site
is whitelisted, it is generally assumed to be a responsible operation that would
actively correct compromised sites, remove malware content, phishing sites,
spammed sites, etc. Therefore the logic of un-doing the whitelisting if
malware appears would be arguably incorrect. The ones who are whitelisted are
the ones likely to do the right thing.
