SOLVED: Where To Report Phishing or Malicious Web Sites

crime scene computerIf you surf to a website that is used for phishing or has malware on it, you should report it.  The question is where to report bad sites?

Below is a list of websites you can very easily report bad / phishing / malicious web pages.  They are listed in order of easy of use / value.  Many of these simply ask you to paste in the URL address:

  1. Google: safebrowsing.google.com/safebrowsing/report_phish/?hl=en 
  2. Norton / Symantec: sitereview.bluecoat.com
  3. Microsoft: microsoft.com/en-us/wdsi/support/report-unsafe-site
  4. ESET: phishing.eset.com/report
  5. PhishTank: phishtank.com
  6. CyberCops: cybertopcops.com/report-malware-sites.php
  7. StopBadWare: stopbadware.org/report-badware

You also might want to consider these two:

  1. US Law Enforcement: complaint.ic3.gov/default.aspx – this one is a pain because it wants all your information
  2. BitCoinWhosWho: bitcoinwhoswho.com/scams – Bitcoin / Crypto currency scams only

All of these sites will eventually share there results with the others so you only need to report to one site but it can / will take days for them to talk so we suggest you report malicious sites using more than one of the above links.
