UK Action Fraud Website Next to Useless …. Insecure forms and no secure email!

Attempted this morning to raise a report of an instance of Zeus malware / ransomware / virus on UK Action Fraud website. Beset with problems –

National Fraud Report Form
Unexpected Error
We are sorry but the complaint form has encountered an unexpected error which has been logged and will be investigated. Meanwhile please wait a few moments and try again.

so I had to phone up and report manually as I did as it said kept trying and kept failing!! 30 odd minutes later and they had all the details – except I couldn’t email them copies of the screenshot of the virus and the log files saying where the virus had come from as they do not have a secure email server …. what hope is there for our Police forces ??

Whilst on hold at various points I noticed several issues – Google Chrome reports the secure part of the site as weak security and your connection may not be private … all quite alarming for our Police forces of the UK responsible for online cyber crime!!
