In the following chat with Dreamhost's technical support, helpful Olgie revealed to us that "for compromised sites you must follow the instructions on the notification you received and reply to the abuse team in case you have anymore doubts" and then refused to help us further because "this is a case that is only handled by the Abuse/Security team" and "that is only to be reached via ticket [by email]".
Next day DreamHost replied stating that their instructions were "clean" and we must remove phishing content or the site will not go live. According to them, there are no issues accessing the phishing content via FTP/SFTP/SSH for removing it. Finally they threatened that if we re-enable the site without obeying their ultimatum, they will shut us down more permanently.

- why was the page reported, and
- what exactly is wrong in that page.
From here you can check the compromised "location" that Dreamhost wanted us to remove: SELL CVV/BANK LOGIN/DUMPS Track 1&2/TRANSFER WU/PAYPAL----- ICQ: 710530177. However, this old post criticising Dreamhost is more likely the real reason for taking this forum down.
How can anyone trust a hosting company that pulls this kind of stunts on their customers?
