Reporting a website in Internet Explorer is made extremely easy and can be done from the Tools menu.

Navigate over to the safety section.

Now click on the Report unsafe website option.

This will open a new page where you will be asked if you think the site is performing aphishing attack or distributing malware respectively. Check the box most appropriate to your situation or both if necessary, fill in the CAPTCHA and hit the submit button.

That’s all it takes to do your part if you stumble upon a malicious website, providing you use Internet Explorer of course.
