They used Contrast Context Histogram (CCH) to describe the images of web pages and k-mean algorithm to cluster nearest key points. Lastly, euclidean distance between two descriptors is used to obtain similarity between two sites. 1% false positive. Chen et al.

Lastly, euclidean distance between two descriptors is used to obtain similarity between two sites. 1% false positive. Chen et al. (2009) claimed that screenshot analysis lack efficiency in proper detection of online phishing. Fu et al. (2006) utilized Earth Mover’s Distance (EMD) to associate low-resolution screen capture of a web page. Images of web pages are denoted through the aid of image pixel color (alpha, red, green, and blue) and the centroid of its position distribution in the image.

However, blacklists are to contain older fake websites rather than newer ones, which give impostors a better chance of successive attack before being blacklisted. Furthermore, Liu et al. (2006) claimed that 5% of spoof site recipients become victims in spite of the availability of a profusion of web browser integrated lookup systems. , 2006). Several classifier systems have been created over the years to combat phishing. , 2004).
