Being on the front line of this in my RL job, it makes me so sad to see this more and more often.

And most of the time the phishing sites are hacked genuine sites where the owners have no idea. It's really important for abuse departments of the host, and of the presumably hacked email to get these reports as soon as possible. I bet that would require a full time job for someone who gets the amount of spam that crosses our inbox daily.

I don't care if I get 50 abuse reports about the same site, I'd rather that than a phishing site be left on our networks.

I've noticed more of these lately.

I fire off a few made up usernames and logins to lower moral, then report the email (if it isn't spoofed), and contact the form hosts. Most fake login pages get closed fairly quickly.

^ This is most likely me being thick (not as technically/internet/computer savvy as I would like) - but how do you know that the made up usernames and logins don't coincide with another person's actual user and login?

^ One way could be to make the mail provider non-existant. Like @yohoho.com, @gmill.com, @hatmail.com etc. Wink

I don't. But the chances of me plucking a working name and pw out of thin air would be staggering. Cool They are usually fairly long and Embarassed so it's highly unlikely.

You could even use a nonexistent TLD, such as mrilu.jb.

There's a great anti phishing site here: http://www.antiphishing.org
I usually report to them, as well as the company being impersonated.

I used to respond to phishing attempts with fake info, until my computer totally crashed. The techs at the local repair shop said my machine was totally overwhelmed with malware that bypassed my antivirus software. I've since learned that phishing sites very commonly have malware scripts running, so even clicking a link can be dangerous.

Now I run No-Script as a Firefox add-on and have a paid version of Malwarebytes running in the background at all times. Those have blocked more malware attempts than I can count. And I stopped playing with phishing links.

Bottom line: be careful.

^ No script is a must for my work computer. And I have been a "blind link clicker" in the past, and got rewarded with getting my computer completely flooded with all sorts of nasties.
