Hello, I have written an article which allows users to easily report dangerous sites to multiple services. The article can be found here:
http://www.techsupportalert.com/content/how-report-dangerous-websites.htm

Currently, I am testing its effectiveness at getting phishing sites blacklisted. For testing I used this site:
http://tintuc.vienmaytinh.com/wp-includes/js/tinymce/utils/webmail/Buckeye-Express/bex.net/buckeye-express.html
which is an active phishing site submitted over one month ago to all relevant services in my article. However, I found that it appears that AVG has not yet blacklisted the site. Can you please let me know if it is actually blacklisted or, if it is not, whether AVG even blacklists phishing sites? If so, can you please let me know which submission method would be more effective?

Thank you.

Not to be pushy, but is there any update on this?

Also, does anyone else reading this know how to submit a dangerous site to AVG? I was told to send it as an email to virus@avg.com, but it appears that this may only be suitable for malware.

Does anyone know of a different method?

Thank you.

Hello Chiron494,

You can try reporting that page here, but mail to virus@avg.com should be ok.

Thank you.

Thank you.

I've added that reporting option to my article as well.
