sockpuppets attack PhishTank

According to one of its moderators, over 40 new accounts were registered with PhishTank.com in order to (dishonestly) vote that a PhishTank incident report was "Not A Phish". PhishTank quickly reconsidered that outcome and has verified that the incident is a phish. The incident report is at

The first voter and the last two voters listed in the report are legitimate, as is the submitter. The site egasonline.biz, reportedly hosting the phishing scam, did not respond when I tried to visit it just now. All of the voters who registered on or about 4-August-2011 seem to vote en masse to clear certain phishing scams that spoof eBay.

The same sockpuppets have voted in a more recent incident:
