Did you come across a malicious website and you don’t know what you should do? I guess it’s similar to what we usually do in our offline life, report this to the high authority, here we’ll report websites having malware content to the search engine giant – Google.
Earlier we discussed Google’s Safe Browsing technology and showed how to find whether a website is affected by malware or not, now we’ll show how you can report such websites to Google so that they can take proper action and filter their search results accordingly.
Report Websites Having Malware Content
You need to visit Google’s Report a Malware (Badware) page. Now enter/paste the website domain name URL (or any specific page) that you suspect contains malicious software content. Though the additional information section is optional, I would suggest you fill some useful relevant information there.
Maybe just tell them from where you got this link, via search results or any referral website and how you believe this site contains malware content. Just be candid and answer them for fixing this asap.
That’s it. You might think you just did a very small thing today, but who knows, you might have saved someone or 100s or 1000s of people from getting affected by that malware website. Thinking like this sounds good right? I’m sure you’ll agree with me. Malware or Malicious software content websites not just affects your desktop computer but also your mobile devices, so it’s very dangerous and you should act asap you see such websites out there on the Internet.
