PhishDB.

Anti-Phishing platform
for rapid identification and takedowns.

 

Overview

With over 90% of breaches attributed to phishing campaigns,  it’s no surprise that phishing attacks cost organisations around the world billions of dollars annually. The most common outcomes of a successful phishing attack include direct financial losses due to customer account compromise, unfavourable brand reputation and loss of customer trust, plus increasing clean-up and mitigation costs.

Components

Continuous life-cycle monitoring

PhishDB uses PhantomJS lazy-loading technology to automatically render the content of URLs the way a user's browser would see it. We save a complete screenshot of the site as well as the source code that was presented to the browser. For our customers’ brands , we create captures of URLs every 3 hours.

This type of monitoring gives a complete picture of how a site changes over time, and is critical for tracking brand-targeting rotation, redirection campaigns, and detecting page state changes.

Auto-identification engine

Core to PhishDB is our Auto-Identification Engine, which uses custom algorithms based on fuzzy hashing, which allows us to compare two distinctly different items and determine a fundamental level of similarity, represented as a percentage.

Takedown engine

Our fully-automated Takedown Engine continuously queries URLs containing active phish for our customers, and sends templated takedowns with all the relevant data the hosting provider needs to locate and take down the phish.

Redirection & campaign tracking

Malicious actors continually rotate through redirector URLs in spam campaigns so that the landing pages themselves are not picked up by modern spam detection engines. However, PhishDB continuously mines and reviews content scrapes to map out the relationships between pages.

This allows you to view the source pages a URL is redirected from, as well as the target pages that it redirects to. This mapping allows you to track entire campaigns with ease.

Metrics

To bring additional usefulness for reporting and compliance to our customers, we include a suite of metrics regarding phishing campaigns against their brands, including

  • Number of New and Shutdown Active Phish
  • Average and Median Time to Takedown Sent
  • Responsive Hosting Provider Shutdown Time
  • Unresponsive/Bulletproof Hosting Provider Shutdown Time.

Reporting

A CSV export option allows you to export the raw underlying data in your own reports or spreadsheets. Our regular management reports also provide macro metrics about trends for

  • The most targeted phishing brands
  • The worst hosting providers (regarding phishing delivered from their network), and
  • The worst IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

24/7 automated protection
A fully-automated approach ensures that active phishing pages never sit around waiting for manual human review. Our system operates around the clock to identify malicious phishing pages and performs takedown actions day and night.

Our phishing portal provides a clear overview of all relevant phishing statistics, campaigns, and active URLs to give you the entire picture of the current and historical phishing threat level and activity for your brands.
