Phish Report Network - a scam?

There's a new organisation doing the rounds called the Phish Report Network that is making high claims about being "the cornerstone" of the industry's efforts to fight phishing attacks. In fact the site seems to be a front for a vendor of anti-phishing software, WholeSecurity.

There's a long established organisation devoted to understanding and combating phishing, The Anti Phishing Working Group. Compare and contrast and I think you'll see what I mean.

ClamAV, the open source anti virus software, has been detecting phishing attacks for some time and is well worth a look if you're looking for something to help ward off the bad guys, :)
