Join the fight against phishing


Recommended Posts

I am getting a lot of phishing emails, send them off to my AV (Eset) and they add it to their signature list all the time.

 

They gave me a link to help battle the fight against phishing.

 

So join in it's really fun !!

Send your phishing emails to your AV as well, together we can win !

Hello Hav0c - Years and years ago, when I was young(er) and (a little more) foolish, I started out with AOL. My inbox was inundated with everything under there sun. It was a major task keeping up with it, and I would say 95% or more of it was nothing but pure junk. Advertising, spam, phishing, people selling God, you name it. Several years later I got EarthLink, and noticed a huge drop in the amount of junk mail. About five years ago I got Verizon FIOS, and I have to admit, they do an excellent job of filtering out the junk. The only people or companies I get email from are the ones I gave my email address to, and that's it. I'd like to help you in your campaign, but I have absolutely nothing to offer.

+1 for the EarthLink spam blocker and their corresponding anti phishing send address

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

@Derek891

You did have something to offer namely EarthLink  :P.

This is just more of a "awareness" post to counter phishing, maybe EarthLink also needs users to help them counter phishing by sending in the links, I don't know.

 

But one thing is for sure and that is AV companies appropriate it if their users send them phishing links or HTML attachments.

Banks fraud department also appropriate it when customers sends them the links.

 

@Winapp2

The spam bots that the guys uses just random the mail address. Some of them are very good at it also.

I got a gmail address in format    xxxxx(dot)yyyyyy  and get mail for xxxxxyyyyyy and it's 99% phishing mails. So I just send it off to my AV.

Most A/V products outsource their spam fighting efforts.

 

In most cases sending them to your A/V provider will just annoy them - probably why they directed you to PhishTank.

gmail ignores dots in email handles.

 

x.x.x.x.x.yyyyy@gmail.com will send to xxxxxyyyyy@gmail.com

If so, then why can there be a user xxxxx.yyyyy@gmail.com and xxxxxyyyyy@gmail.com active at the same time ?

wouldn't that course a user already exist error  ?

I put ninite.com into that site. At the end it seems to assume it is MY site and gives recommdations for firewall etc (through them and paying for it of course)

 

Not a site I'd use in future, it gives exactly the same result if you ask them to scan.... ninite.com/piriform

 

Probably use http://www.urlvoid.com/

The site isn't that user friendly and it assumes that the user is scanning their own sites.

 

The couple of sites that I tested worked nicely getting hits.

Case in point http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/www.lpmxp1072.com

 

But thanks for the input hazelnut
