Abstract

Phishing attacks are a common feature of online communications. Phishing assaults affect numerous on-screen characters, from singular casualties to the corporate and government offices whose brands are misleadingly utilized. Reacting to phishing is enormous business, driving programming security markets, impacting eCommerce take-up and interest, and ensuring corporate brand and picture. Phishing assaults target vulnerabilities that exist in frameworks because of the human factor. Numerous digital assaults are spread by means of components that adventure shortcomings found in end-clients, which makes clients the weakest component in the security chain. The phishing issue is expansive and no single silver-projectile arrangement exists to moderate every one of the vulnerabilities adequately, along these lines various strategies are frequently actualized to relieve particular assaults. A browser extension, SecureIt!, that provides phishing protection is described here. It automatically replaces the fake URLs with the original one, improving web security and defending against password phishing and other attacks. It achieves this functionality by implementing an in-built database. Since the browser extension applies a cryptographic hash function to a combination of the plaintext password entered by the user, data associated with the web site, theft of the password received at one site will not yield a password that is useful at another site. The extension is written in JavaScript and provides a simple yet powerful user interface. It is fully transparent, in the sense that the user can easily view the database without any technical knowledge and also modify the database to add his/her own websites.
