    Where or how can I report a potential malicious website so it could be added to the restricted list in Spywareblaster?

    This site attempts to install the malicious software: Antivirus 2009

    Hi,

    Thanks for the report - protection against this nasty is included in today's SpywareBlaster database update. :)

    We should have a better mechanism for reporting suspected sites soon - for the time being, you can send me a PM via the forum software (so no one else accidentally clicks on any links).

    Best regards,

    Thank you so much. Ive had 2 friends drastically effected by that software recently. One to an extent that it caused so many BSOD blue screens of death that it damaged hardware. The other had Time Warner shut off his Internet connection due to the broadcasting onto the Internet.

    Your hardwork is much appreciated, thanks for all you do.

    I have a link to another website that I have saved the url in notepad. As I don't want anyone to see it , could one of the mods pm me to have me send it to the right channels to get it added to the data base or where ever it goes?

    thanks
    it is also a malicious hijacker

    ps: It almost fried my os.....lucky I am somewhat quick to be able to stop it before any damage. Others may not be so lucky.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    (If attaching any files, please .zip them in a password-protected .zip file, and include the password in the body of the e-mail.)
