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.

We will discuss several perceptual hashing algorithms, and describe how we can leverage them to detect phishing sites masquerading as popular sites such as Paypal, Amazon, and others.

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