While lacking the sex appeal of memory corruption based attacks, phishing remains a problem for many end users. Defenses against phishing have not advanced significantly. We will discuss current approaches to phishing detection, and present a new one along with accompanying tool.

Code to collect and identify these malicious sites, and a browser extension leveraging will be explained, demonstrated and released for attendee use and study.
