NotBuyingIt has now verified 300,000 phishes.
Well done!

Thanks for the compliment!

Once again, I'd like to suggest that WOT users who are able to identify phishing webpages, may wish to help evaluate some of the incident reports submitted to PhishTank.com when they have time. Several exceptionally generous members and former members of the WOT users' community continue to be very helpful. (I find that I no longer have as much time as before to help out, so I am reducing my participation next year.)

<quote user="d͏͡esig҉͟n̵̕͝">
Need to remind that WOT has stopped receiving information about confirmed phishes in PhishTank for unknown reason. Of course it is still not fixed.
[/quote] Unfortunately, we don't know whether it will every be fixed.

<quote user="d͏͡esig҉͟n̵̕͝">
If WOT users will help to check phishes in order to make other WOT users (who don't use OpenDNS) protected it will be now a waste of time.
[/quote] I've been able to provide WOT over a thousand additional ratings about phishing per year based upon my PhishTank evaluations. On many occasions, I and other WOT community members have provided "early warnings" ahead of WOT posting PhishTank cautions. During a few periods years ago, I was able to provide WOT hundreds of ratings per week about malware based upon data mining PhishTank incident reports (even though PhishTank doesn't intentionally collect malware reports). I don't think that we've wasted our time. Of course, as I cut back my participation with PhishTank, my early warnings will become fewer and fewer. I am hoping perhaps others here will volunteer to continue the work. I'm aware that community members who are active in the forums often are involved in other important efforts already.

The PhishTank database spurs scams to be more rapidly shut-down— and that's my overriding goal. It benefits WOT users and everybody else.

PhishTank reaches 6 million reports

Several days ago, PhishTank published submission #6000000. A well-known member (perhaps now inactive) of this WOT users' community helped to verify it. Unfortunately, I no longer see any influence by PhishTank upon the WOT scorecards.

Is it known if the link between PhishTank and WOT is due to a problem at PhishTank or a problem at WOT?


It seems logical to continue or resurrect this link as it benefits both resources.

I don't know of any remaining WoT "trusted sources", nor would I expect to see any of them appear on WoT scorecards again. The majority of PhishTank votes now appear to be cast by coordinated "friendly" bots.

Will the last person to leave please secure the lights.

I think Support said they were working on it, but that was perhaps a year ago. The trusted sources may still be having an internal effect, however the banners no longer show on the scorecards.
