Phishing is an Internet fraud to entice unsuspecting victims. The tactic of phishing is to impersonate the trusted entities by employing both social engineering and technical subterfuge. Moreover, phishing is a form of online identity theft that creates a fake copy of popular site. There are many types of anti-phishing techniques available. However, they are mostly still in the infancy stage which may give false alarm to the user. Therefore, this research aims to develop a feature-based phishing detection technique to overcome the limitation. The proposed method involves aggregating new features with several existing features to form a sensitive features set. Based on the features set, the proposed method will utilise support vector machine to perform the classification. The experimental results show convincing performance with 95.33 percent of accuracy.
