phishtank.com is a malware TEST SITE.
There is probably a good reason why this site is triggering this alert as it appears that itself is actually a security scanner and that it intentionally contains malware for testing purposes.
This would explain its appearance on lists of "blacklisted" domains including its own blacklist!

These guys have multiple accounts on mywot.com and will basically "sock puppet" their competitors and negative reviews they receive in order to boost their website and slander their competitors.
Quttera lists Phishtank.com as a "suspicious site" according to VT:
When you think of legitimate sources the website phishtank.com does not come to mind. This website is to laugh at. Totally irrelevant in today's industry. I actually consider them to be quite malicious.
Furthermore, this website has a horrible reputation and safety issues according to Google: https://www.google.com/transparencyreport/safebrowsing/diagnostic/index.html#url=phishtank.com
It's easy to play it safe and avoid these safe browsing infractions.
Phishtank like WOT utilizes member submissions which are flawed and opinion based. The site doesn't reflect factual information. WOT utilizes it to justify false ratings submitted by membesr who inappropriately submit these false ratings.
