Can I get an opinion and advice on this please ?
I see PhishLabs like to harass small webmasters by taking down their urls using fake complaints.
I received the below message today (but this is not an isolated case at all).
They claim I am running some kind of phishing against that “Subito” site, simply because they found the term “Subito” on my website ?!
I run a search engine named Crawlson, you can clearly see there is no phishing involved at that url (labeled “Reported URLs” below), it simply shows domain statistics, a clean URL.
Yet my URL is inaccessible, showing “phishing” warning.
And Cloudflare says it it restricted until “content is removed”.
- Why should I remove that since there is no phishing ?
- Why does Cloudflare restrict my clean URL without slightest verification ?
- Does anyone else have these issues with PhishLabs ?
- Is everyone OK with these abusive practices ?
Normally I would need to contact Cloudflare to remove this, but on last issue I got a reply after around 2 weeks. So that is not an option. Next option would be to just stop using Cloudflare I guess
