Suspicious Email Submitter

The Suspicious Email Submitter is an extension for common web browsers and email clients that enables the user in one-click to submit a suspicious email with all the information necessary to a pre-configured destination for further analysis.

This project was submitted by the Computer Incident Response Center for Civil Society (CiviCERT), representing the needs of the at-risk communities Rapid Response Network member organizations serve, as well as the needs identified by other organizations within the Internet Freedom space such as Amnesty International. The extension will be built to be easily configurable for use by other organizations and communities both within and beyond the Internet Freedom space.
