We incentivise phishing reports from our community of reporters. The current list of prizes is as follows:
|Netcraft USB Flash Drive||after 100 validated phishing reports|
|Netcraft Branded Mug||after 250|
|Netcraft T-Shirt||after 500|
|Targus Laptop Backpack||after 1,000|
As a further incentive, reporters become eligible for a separate competition when they reach 5,000 validated reports.
The Netcraft Extension, which is available for Firefox, Google Chrome™ and Opera, serves as a giant neighbourhood watch scheme for the Internet. Members who encounter a phishing site can act to defend the larger community of users against the attack. Once the first recipients of a phishing mail have reported the attack URL, it is blocked for community members as they subsequently access the URL. Widely disseminated attacks simply mean that the phishing attack will be reported and blocked sooner.
