Neighborhood watch for phishing launches

...Sunbelt and CastleCops are officially launching a volunteer group, dubbed the Phishing Incident Reporting and Termination squad, or PIRT.

In the round the clock PIRT operation, the volunteer "handlers" around the world take in reports from consumers of suspected phishing Web sites and work to take the sites offline. On Friday, before its official launch, the group received 100 phishing reports, and 30 of those were shut down in a few hours, Laudanski said.
