    Phishing Attacks in Social Engineering: A Review

    Kofi Sarpong Adu-Manu*, Richard Kwasi Ahiable, Justice Kwame Appati, Ebenezer Essel Mensah

    Journal of Cyber Security, Vol.4, No.4, pp. 239-267, 2022, DOI:10.32604/jcs.2023.041095

    Abstract Organisations closed their offices and began working from home online to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. This shift in work culture coincided with increased online use during the same period. As a result, the rate of cybercrime has skyrocketed. This study examines the approaches, techniques, and countermeasures of Social Engineering and phishing in this context. The study discusses recent trends in the existing approaches for identifying phishing assaults. We explore social engineering attacks, categorise them into types, and offer both technical and social solutions for countering phishing attacks which makes this paper different More >

    Modelling an Efficient URL Phishing Detection Approach Based on a Dense Network Model

    A. Aldo Tenis*, R. Santhosh

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.47, No.2, pp. 2625-2641, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.036626

    Abstract The social engineering cyber-attack is where culprits mislead the users by getting the login details which provides the information to the evil server called phishing. The deep learning approaches and the machine learning are compared in the proposed system for presenting the methodology that can detect phishing websites via Uniform Resource Locator (URLs) analysis. The legal class is composed of the home pages with no inclusion of login forms in most of the present modern solutions, which deals with the detection of phishing. Contrarily, the URLs in both classes from the login page due, considering… More >

    Assessing Secure OpenID-Based EAAA Protocol to Prevent MITM and Phishing Attacks in Web Apps

    Muhammad Bilal1,*, Sandile C. Shongwe2, Abid Bashir3, Yazeed Y. Ghadi4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.75, No.3, pp. 4713-4733, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.037071

    Abstract To secure web applications from Man-In-The-Middle (MITM) and phishing attacks is a challenging task nowadays. For this purpose, authentication protocol plays a vital role in web communication which securely transfers data from one party to another. This authentication works via OpenID, Kerberos, password authentication protocols, etc. However, there are still some limitations present in the reported security protocols. In this paper, the presented anticipated strategy secures both Web-based attacks by leveraging encoded emails and a novel password form pattern method. The proposed OpenID-based encrypted Email’s Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (EAAA) protocol ensure security by relying… More >

    Detection of Phishing in Internet-of-Things Using Hybrid Deep Belief Network

    S. Ashwini*, S. Magesh Kumar

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.36, No.3, pp. 3043-3056, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.034551

    Abstract Increase in the use of internet of things owned devices is one of the reasons for increased network traffic. While connecting the smart devices with publicly available network many kinds of phishing attacks are able to enter into the mobile devices and corrupt the existing system. The Phishing is the slow and resilient attack stacking techniques probe the users. The proposed model is focused on detecting phishing attacks in internet of things enabled devices through a robust algorithm called Novel Watch and Trap Algorithm (NWAT). Though Predictive mapping, Predictive Validation and Predictive analysis mechanism is… More >

    Machine Learning Techniques for Detecting Phishing URL Attacks

    Diana T. Mosa1,2, Mahmoud Y. Shams3,*, Amr A. Abohany2, El-Sayed M. El-kenawy4, M. Thabet5

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.75, No.1, pp. 1271-1290, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.036422

    Abstract Cyber Attacks are critical and destructive to all industry sectors. They affect social engineering by allowing unapproved access to a Personal Computer (PC) that breaks the corrupted system and threatens humans. The defense of security requires understanding the nature of Cyber Attacks, so prevention becomes easy and accurate by acquiring sufficient knowledge about various features of Cyber Attacks. Cyber-Security proposes appropriate actions that can handle and block attacks. A phishing attack is one of the cybercrimes in which users follow a link to illegal websites that will persuade them to divulge their private information. One… More >

    Impact of Human Vulnerabilities on Cybersecurity

    Maher Alsharif1, Shailendra Mishra2,*, Mohammed AlShehri1

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.40, No.3, pp. 1153-1166, 2022, DOI:10.32604/csse.2022.019938

    Abstract Today, security is a major challenge linked with computer network companies that cannot defend against cyber-attacks. Numerous vulnerable factors increase security risks and cyber-attacks, including viruses, the internet, communications, and hackers. Internets of Things (IoT) devices are more effective, and the number of devices connected to the internet is constantly increasing, and governments and businesses are also using these technologies to perform business activities effectively. However, the increasing uses of technologies also increase risks, such as password attacks, social engineering, and phishing attacks. Humans play a major role in the field of cybersecurity. It is… More >
