The World Wide Web (WWW) has become the hotbed of a multi-billion dollar underground economy among cyber criminals whose victims range from individual Internet users to large corporations and even government organizations. As phishing attacks are increasingly being used by criminals to facilitate their cyber schemes, it is important to develop effective phishing detection tools. In this paper, the authors propose a rule-based method to detect phishing webpages. They first study a number of phishing websites to examine various tactics employed by phishers and generate a rule set based on observations.
