Anti Phishing for Mid-Range Mobile Phones

Imran Khan Memon and Muhammad Khalid Khan
Abstract—E-commerce has been the centre of attraction for millions of users, because people now want to perform important activities like buying and selling etc. over internet through personal computers or mobile phones. This has compelled service providers to devise reliable and secure ways for Ecommerce through which users can perform transactions without any risk. E-commerce trade has experienced the largest number of cyber crimes that includes various types of security attacks. Phishing attack is the one most common among these all, as the mobile banking is getting popular, hence protecting the mobile users from phishing attacks is very important; particularly mid-range mobile users, because these users are easy target of attackers as mid-range mobile phones do not support feature like anti-virus or anti-phishing tool. A mobile based anti phishing mechanism is proposed as shown in experiments, particularly for mid-range mobile phones that would protect users and their critical financial information from phishing attacks by generating three types of warnings such as vibration, flashing and text alert based warning, hence user would be restricted to visit any fake Webpage.

Index Terms—Cyber crime, mobile banking security, phishing.
