Where to report attack sites?
As the question states where do I report attack sites? Specifically for Firefox, Safari and IE. I found the one for Google but I do not know if that will disseminate to the other companies.
It is for a fake spyware scanner that tries to force you to download and install their program. Once these things are installed they can be impossible to remove.
I was looking for an answer to another problem which I clicked a possible good Google hit. Which redirects you to a false spyware scanner which tries to trick you into downloading it.
Edit: I had links to the fake spyware scanner and a long winded warning. But thought better of it as there might be twenty new threads of how to remove the fake spyware scanner. Which some click happy people automatically clicked then downloaded and installed.
I am willing to repost the original if requested.
