School of phish

“People-driven security, an approach that pools the judgments of individual participants to identify new threats, is gathering momentum, with uses popping up in everything from antimalware and spam blocking to site filtering.”

This article discusses several collaborative efforts (one called PhishTank) which aim to utilize Web2.0 collaboration to identify phishing sites or other mallware sites.There is also a FireFox plugin to utilize this service.  Collaboration just might save us all.
