Question Hundreds of dodgy websites containing texts from my website

By doing exact match searches on Google, I have found that there are tens and hundreds of dodgy/spammy websites that contain text content from my webpages. It is like they have created pages consisting of text copied from my website. If you navigate to any of those Google results it takes you to pages where you actually do not see your texts and Norton or other antivirus software pops up and blocks those pages... as harmful.

Do those dodgy / spam websites affect my google ranking? Is my website associated to any SPAM related activity just because those websites are using exactly text from my webpages on their SPAMMY pages?

And last but not least ... what can I do in such situations? Report them to Google? Change my texts (but they will use my new ones)? ... what would you do???

Example:
By doing an exact match search on google for: "Cyprus Architects is a prime portal featuring Architects in Cyprus. If you are looking for professionals to plan, design and oversee", the first result is from cyprusarchitects.com (my website) but the rest of results are pointing to dodgy / harmful websites.
