Anti-phishing protection
« on: September 11, 2011, 12:58:41 PM »
Hi  ;)
Where to send information about phishing sites?

Avast offers information where to send files for analysis, but there is no information where i can send information about phishing sites.

As example, here is a new phishing site ( hXXp://www.vkstyles.in ) designed to steal passwords to Russian social network ( hXXp://www.vkontakte.ru ).
hXXp://www.vkstyles.in suggests choosing a theme to the hXXp://www.vkontakte.ru , and then asked to enter (confirm) a login and password, which is sent to thieves.

Please edit your post and change the links to avoid problems. You can use hXXp instead of http, or insert spaces in the links (yes, to break them).

thx, i find the answer:
Quote
Reporting a phishing/malicious site not detected by the Network Shield:
Essentially it is sending an email to virus (at) avast (dot) com (no attachment as there is no physical file) outlining the issue and giving the URL in the body of the email.

The email Subject is probably more crucial as I would say it still has to be called 'Undetected Malware' for it to be filtered within the receipt system for action. I would go further and include 'Network Shield' in the subject to further define the problem and possibly attract attention. So the subject would be something like "Undetected Malware - Network Shield - Phishing/Malicious site" (whichever is applicable), without the Quotes.
