  1. Use the link below to tell McAfee about gerdab.ir and mark it as phishing (Register for an account first!):

    gerdab.ir | McAfee SiteAdvisor Software – Website Safety Ratings and Secure Search

    With enough comments about gerdab.ir, everyone or McAfee can give the site a yellow or red status, which will then get blocked by those using the McAfee SiteAdvisor Plus software (paid version).
    What is McAfee SiteAdvisor and how it works?

    This also raises awareness to Iranians and the West about what's really going on behind the scenes with this site.

    How exactly would this hurt gerdab.ir?

    McAfee sells a popular anti-virus & web safety package. Their Site Advisor is a tool that:
    A) Warns people about bad websites
    B) Allows people to look up ratings & comments on a website if they are unsure about it's safety.

    It would only be an effective warning for those who use McAfee's full internet suite of web tools. Make sure any negative feedback on a website is true & accurate.

    Another tool to warn people about bad websites is Web Of Trust. Again, it only works as a warning for those use use that tool. Different website trust systems check different things.

    In the case of gerdab.ir, You might rate it an untrustworthy website, & rate it as bad for privacy concerns. You could also make comments under headings like "Ethical Issues" or rate positively comments that you think are good & downvote comments that you think don't apply.

    It won't save everyone, but it may help protect the few that do use those tools.
  4. Also you can tell Netcraft about gerdab.ir:
    Report Suspicious URL

    Netcraft collects and documents info about suspected phishing websites and identifies which countries and hosters are the phishiest. It may help those who use the Netcraft anti-phishing toolbar.

    Don't waste your time. That is just for websites that are impersonating other websites like a bank. gerdab.ir is not pretending to be anybody but themselves.
