Phishing is a significant problem that tricks unsuspecting users into revealing private information involving fraudulent email and websites. This causes tremendous economic loss every year.

They used some fresh phish from PhishTank that were recently added to test that it can be detected by blacklist or not. They found that 70 % of the phishing websites in their dataset lasted less than two hours.
