The incidences of malware on .CH websites went down by a third (33%) in 2014, but incidences of phishing went up five-fold to 323.
SWITCH, the Swiss registry, uncovered 1,839 cases of malware last year, roughly a third below the total of 2,718 recorded in 2013. In 1,493 of these cases, registrants removed the harmful code after receiving the first notification from SWITCH.
However, there was an increase in the number of phishing cases. The number of phishing cases increased almost fivefold between the first and fourth quarters. The removal process is the same as for malware: SWITCH checks websites for phishing and notifies the holder when it is found. In 2014, SWITCH recorded 323 cases of phishing, and the phishing site was removed after the first notification in 298 of these.

SWITCH introduced a process for removing malware-spreading code from websites back in 2010. Various partner organisations in Switzerland and abroad warn SWITCH about websites that spread malware. Where there is a justified suspicion, the holder of a website is notified and requested to remove the harmful code within one working day. The domain name is temporarily blocked for up to five days in the interests of security if this is not done, and SWITCH demands identification from the holder if the infection is not removed from the website during this time. Should the holder also fail to meet this demand, the domain name is deleted after 30 days.

In view of the sharp increase in cases, phishing is now being handled with the same priority as malware.
