How to Report a Bad Website

Bad websites include those that have malicious intent for visitors to the site. Such sites can infect your computer with malware or are suspected of phishing for user email addresses or passwords. For example, upon visiting a malware website you may have been prompted to do a security scan of your computer. These scans often look like legitimate Windows security scans. But your computer may develop glitches after running the scan or after leaving the website. There is no central organization set up to defeat these websites, but Google and Yahoo encourage users to report to them any bad websites.
