Deals with machine learning technology for detection of phishing URLs by extracting and analysing various features of legitimate and phishing URLs. Random forest and Support vector machine algorithms are used to detect phishing websites. The propose a learning-based approach to classifying Web sites into 3 classes: Benign, Spam and Malicious. Benign are the safe websites with normal services. Spam is the Website performs the act of attempting to flood the user with advertising or sites such as fake surveys and online dating etc. Malware are the Website created by attackers to disrupt computer operation, gather sensitive information, or gain access to private computer systems.
