    In helping a client to remove malware from their system, I discovered a
    website that tries to install a trojan (Trojan.ByteVerify) each time it is
    visited. I have sent e-mail to the hosting company of this site four days
    ago. I have not received a reply and the site is still actively trying to
    infect user's computers. Is this something which should be reported and if
    so, does anyone know where or to what authority I can report this website?

    I can post more specific information here (without an actual link to the website) if that is appropriate. This is not a new virus and any up-to-date scanner should catch it. It just irritates me that this site is allowed to be up and running, infecting the machines of unwary people who may go there. I realize that this site is probably just one of many but surely, *someone* should be able to force them to correct the situation or remove the site.

    You could try the FCC.....for all the good that will do......or the attorney general's off.......but remember those are for the U.S......other countries have their own such agencies...........will reporting this help.....GOOD LUCK!



    If I recall...(its been a long while) the exploit is a java exploit that works on a weakness is M$ virtual machine....(which you can remove and change to sun java)
    The exploit may also be in bed with coolwebsearch......although this is not often mentioned........naturally the nasty could have changed numerous times...so beawear..........you just asked on where to report.....so guess that all I can offer
