You should be able to go to Junk email settings in Outlook Web and blacklist your friend's email address. That should work (it does in my own web mail).

Probably the easy thing to do is to setup a rule to move this email to junk. You can do this by right clicking on the email and selecting create rule

Then just select the Junk Email Folder

This will then move all the email to the junk folder.

The official way is to report a phishing scam.

If you believe you've received a phishing scam, report the email by selecting the arrow next to Junk and choosing one of the following options.

Junk Use this option for routine unwanted email.

Phishing scam Use this option for an email that is trying to trick you into giving out your personal information such as your password, bank account information, or Social Security number.

My friend's been hacked Use this option if you start getting junk email or phishing scams from a sender you would normally trust.

... and you just open the email from your friend and click the the three dots at the upper right corner and select "My friend's been hacked" and Microsoft will handle it.
