A Lightweight Defense Scheme for Mobile Phishing
Recent years have witnessed the increasing threat of phishing attacks on mobile platforms. In fact, mobile phishing is more dangerous due to the limitations of mobile phones and the mobile user habits. Existing schemes designed for phishing attacks on computers/laptops cannot effectively address phishing attacks on mobile devices. This paper presents CellPhish, a novel automated lightweight anti-phishing scheme for mobile platforms. CellPhish verifies the validity of web pages by comparing the actual identity to the identity claimed by web pages. CellPhish has been implemented on Google nexus 4 Smartphone running Android 4.2 operating system.
