In combating phish many intruders have started to attack so identify thisIndustry relies heavily on manual verification to they used the blacklist concept [5].Early anti-phishingachieve a low false positive rate, which however researchers analyzed page source code or URLtends to be slows in responding to the huge information to extract various features which couldvolume created by toolkits. The goal here is to be used in comparison with known real page.combine the best aspects of human verified CANTINA [6] began to use an external resource,blacklists and heuristic-based methods which are Google, to find real page and judge the suspectthe low false positive rate of the former and the immediately. According to CANTINA’s results,broad coverage of the latter. The key insight many researchers used this approach as a basis tobehind our detection algorithm is to leverage develop new detection method.

Our system exploits the high similarityamong phishing web pages, a result of the wide useof toolkits by criminals. We applied shingling, awell-known technique used by search engines forweb page duplication detection, to label a given webpage as being similar (or dissimilar) from knownphish taken from black-lists. To minimize falsepositives, we used two white-lists of legitimatedomains, as well as altering module which use thewell-known TF-IDF algorithm and search enginequeries, to further examine the legitimacy ofpotential phish.REFERENCES 1.
