Domain Used Temporarily as Phishing Training page has landed on Safe Browsing Block List. 1 Recommended Answer 8 Replies 1 Upvote

So I used a subdomain of 'newtelco.online' as a phishing training site for my coworkers for about 1-2 days. During that time, Google bots seemed to have scanned it and flagged it as phishing, which it technically was. 

Anyway, I removed that subdomain after ~1-2 days after the training was over. But by that point the entire domain had been listed as dangerous and blocked on all Chromium related browsers. 

What happened then really shocked me though. The registrar (.online) suspended the domain and Cloudflare (my DNS provider) completely removed it from my account.

Talking with cloudflare's support the first thing I'm supposed to do is talk with Google to get it removed from the safe browsing blacklist. But I've had no luck so far filing a complaint or talking to my G Suite support (we are paying G Suite customers under our primary domain..).

Has anyone else dealt with this? Who am I supposed to talk to at Google to get the ball rolling here.

You would need to look for the domain in the search console. And then request a review. 
 
 
 
 
But if the domain is suspended you might not be able to access the search console. (because need to verify domain, which is done via DNS or the hosting for th edomain)

Yeah unfortunately it is not in my search console, and as you said I can't add it because I can't make any changes to it.

Ask them how they imagine googlebot can review/ rescind phish label if it cannot access the site.
 
Exactly what is googlebot going to be able to review?

Okay yeah I've requested a review at the URL (https://safebrowsing.google.com/safebrowsing/report_error/?hl=en) mentioned in that article about 2 weeks ago already and haven't heard anything yet. 

So I guess I'll just be patient

If googlebot cannot access the site, then it cannot review it.
 
So you will be waiting a long time :-)

Gotcha - I'll try to get Cloudflare to budge and recreate access soon. I think its a bit out of their hands though as well since the registry (.online) has also suspended the domain.

Ask the registry then.
 
Whoever has blocked it needs to unblock it so googlebot CAN access it.
 
This issue comes up every so often with these misguided registrars/ hosting services.
 
For instance, Google can and does flag sites that redirect to httpS for login etc using redirects that are not the correct 301 redirects.   Or it flags sites asking for login and other PII and they are not using httpS.
 
The remedy then is for the site to set up SSL and proper redirects. 
 
But the host / registrar blocks them and they cannot implement fix.
 
Catch 22. Misguided / wrong handling by registrar/ hosts.
