Anyone know if malware sites can be reported? To the registrar or whoeover?

Malware, or even just those random spam popup BS sites, you're infected, blabla, whatever.


Thanks!

One place is this:
https://safebrowsing.google.com/

If a site has malicious content, it's best reported to the hosting company that hosts the content, not the registrar, but that might be and the same.

Criminal content is best reported to the police.

Here's a framework by some registrars and registries that I like (the framework, not the site): https://www.dnsabuseframework.org/

Great, thanks!

I wish CIRA had something too, then they can just take the domain away. Plain and simple.

I'm not aware of CIRA having anything like that. And to be honest, I'm not sure I want the registry to be "judge and executioner", even though ICANN is generally leaning in that direction as well. Of course, it also depends on the type of abuse.
