Abstract: Phishing is a security attack that seeks to trick people into revealing sensitive information about themselves and their Internet accounts. This paper proposes a novel anti-phishing approach that is deployed within a Local Area Network (LAN). The approach is a model that automatically perform ongoing analysis for users behaviours against phishing attacks and then based on the results it decides whether to train them or not against phishing. The aim is to enhance the phishing countermeasures applied on a LAN by making users aware of phishing attacks. A prototype proof of concept implementation is presented in this paper in order to test the approach’s applicability. The prototype of the new model shows that the approach model runs and performs the concept.
