Anti – Phishing

Refers to efforts to block phishing attacks. Phishing is a kind of cybercrime where attackers pose as known or trusted entities and contact individuals through email, text or telephone and ask them to share sensitive information.

Phishing email attack

Typically, in a phishing email attack, the message will suggest that there is a problem with an invoice, that there has been suspicious activity on an account, or that the user must login to verify an account or password.

 

Users may also be prompted to enter credit card information or bank account details as well as other sensitive data.

 

Once this information is collected, attackers may use it to access accounts, steal data and identities, and download malware onto the user’s computer.

What is an anti-phishing service?

Is a technological service that helps prevent unauthorized access to secure sensitive information or data such as personal information, usernames, passwords, credit card details, etc.

Anti-phishing services protect various types of data in diverse ways across a variety of platforms.

Anti-phishing includes the number of techniques used to prevent phishing attacks against the individual’s machine or organizations. Several anti-phishing services are available today that can be used to counter phishing attacks.

 

These services usually work for both emails and websites.

Content Filtering

In this methodology content/email are filtered as it enters in the victim’s mailbox using machine learning methods, such as Bayesian Additive Regression Trees (BART) or Support Vector Machines (SVM)

Blacklisting

Blacklist is collection of known phishing Web sites/addresses published by trusted entities like Google’s and Microsoft’s blacklist. It requires both a client & a server component. The client component is implemented as either an email or browser plug-in that interacts with a server component, which in this case is a public Web site that provides a list of known phishing sites.

Symptom-Based Prevention

Symptom-based prevention analyses the content of each Web page the user visits and generates phishing alerts according to the type and number of symptoms detected.

Domain Binding

It is a client’s browser-based techniques where sensitive information (eg. name, password) is bind to a particular domain. It warns the user when he visits a domain to which user credential is not bind.

You will not have to deal with removing viruses since they won’t even get far enough to infect your network
