Abstract: With the quick advancement of web applications, internet users are spending more and more time with these applications .They utilize the benefits of the internet in doing all the day-to-day chores from reading newspaper to grocery shopping .This makes them prone to various kinds of cyber-attacks such as phishing , password attack , malwares etc…Phishing is one of the most common cyber-attack which is made by the attackers to take the users’ delicate data . In phishing attack the users are first tempted with attractive offers and are then redirected to illegitimate (phishing) websites which ask for their credentials .In spite of the alert and awareness spread against these types of cyber-attacks , people continue to fall prey and get affected .The attackers have evolved with time and craft the attacks in such a way that the phishing websites and emails may seem real .Many systems and algorithms have been developed to predict phishing attacks .However ,the achievement rate of phishing attacks stays high and it’s detection is prone towards high true negative and false positive ratio. Therefore ,to deal with this conundrum we are putting forward a generalized algorithm for phishing detection with improved accuracy.
