You may want to report the site to help other people not get phished, and to
alert a number of takedown services that may be getting paid to deal with
the brandname that the phisher used. The brand owners (aka, bank, soap,
food-chain) normally pay people to keep an eye out for phishing lures. Since
they are being paid they normally use more urgency than ISPs.

Send it to: reportphishing (at) antiphishing (dot) org [email concealed] .

That accumulated list is fed to a number of browser blockers, mail filtering
programs, and takedown services.

Subject: Yahoo-hosted phishing sites


Anyone know to whom you can report yahoo-hosted phishing sites (or
redirects) and get someone who has half a clue? If you try to report the
sites to abuse (at) yahoo (dot) com [email concealed], or use the online abuse web form, you get a lame
message that says 'the email in question did not originate from a Yahoo!
mail server' -- or something to that effect.

Yahoo has become a real problem because there seems to be no one to report
these sites to. I have seen Yahoo-hosted sites up for a week or more because
of that...

Any ideas?
