    Abstract:

    Phishing, the act of stealing information via Internet in order to commit financial fraud, has become a significant criminal activity. Phishing has a negative impact on the economy by financial losses taken by companies or individuals, with the side effect of increasing customer distrust in online trading. Nowadays technical resources used in making phishing attack can be purchased from public or private resources; certain technical resources are automated and can be used by less experienced hackers.
