How can i report a website with virus' w/o going to the website?

I am trying to report a website that has trojan horses,virus,hacktool.root an all sorts of things on it. I had went to the site a few days ago and had to completely reformat my harddrive cuz i got all of this stuff from this site and i wanna make sure it gets reported. but everything i see says you can't report a site w/o going to the website and i sure as heck am not going to this website again just to report it. Anyone know how-to report it without going to it?

There is another way if you know the axact URL of the site you visited. Go to safeweb.norton.com, sign in using your my norton account, and leave a really bad review explaining just what happened to you when you visited the site.

I have a small sign on my desk by the computer screen that says "STAY OFF MYSPACE - LOT OF VIRUSES REPORTED". Type in "MySpace" in the search on this forum and read all about it.:smileywink:

PTD is right. Way too many viruses and threats are connected with social networking sites like Facebook and Myspace. Use extreme caution when using these or even searching online for anything affiliated with them or anything that uses keywords affiliated with them. Hackers find unprotected social networkers easy targets.
