PhishTank anti-phishing information feed failure

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

One of the data sources used by SiteTruth is PhishTank, which distributes an XML feed of hostile URLs. Since 1800 PDT 2007-10-10, PhishTank’s file has had no phishing entries. As a result, SiteTruth is not correctly rating phishing sites at this time. The operators of PhishTank have been notified.

Update: Problem fixed 1040 PDT 2007-10-12
