Hi, I reported a phishing page with the URL: hXXps://sfpresswest-secondary.z28.web[.]core.windows.net/ several times in the last few months via the "Submit Abuse Report(CERT)" portal (https://msrc.microsoft.com/report/abuse)

But all I got is an email saying "case closure" and no a single time receive any solid response.

blob storage has been used for phishing activities for a while, if you give it a search on google you will find so many people discussing phishing websites hosted on blob storage service with the domain "window.net".

Is there any effective way I can submitted this case to Microsoft and actually get there attention and have the phishing websites that target my organization removed?

Thanks.
