As we have seen in the past days, the rate of malware distribution has been climbing. It is important for people to be involved in helping curb this by reporting these sites to the proper authorities.

They will look at the threat and contact the host of the websites and the website will be shut down until the owner fixes it or their account gets suspended if what they published was indeed harmful and malicious.

If someone posts a shortened url to another page, do not visit the page it can contain an automatic download which starts as soon as you hit the page. You do not know what is inside. This sort of activity is unsafe for everyone.

Every country has their own bureau Linked with CERT(Computer Emergency Response Team). In the USA it is comprised of Homeland Security. But every country has it's own branch of CERT/CSIRTs
