OpenDNS (which I blogged about in July) has just launched their latest service PhishTank, “a free community site where anyone can submit, verify, track and share phishing data”. OpenDNS will use the data gathered from PhishTank to improve their phishing protection services.
PhishTank is a community anti-phishing Web site where anyone can go to submit suspected phishes, track the status of their submissions and help verify othersâ€™ submissions. Unlike other anti-phishing efforts that may come to mind, PhishTank is totally free to use and open to access.
PhishTank also provides an open API, so developers can pull in the anti-phishing data for use with their own services, both commercial and non-commercial.
Check out Paul Stamatiou’s great write-up on the launch of PhishTank.
