Phishing continue to be one of the most drastic attacks causing both financial institutions and customers huge monetary losses. Nowadays mobile devices are widely used to access the Internet and therefore access financial and confidential data. However, unlike PCs and wired devices, such devices lack basic defensive applications to protect against various types of attacks. In consequence, phishing has evolved to target mobile users in Vishing and SMishing attacks recently. This study presents a client-server distributed architecture to detect phishing e-mails by taking advantage of automatic variable selection in Bayesian Additive Regression Trees (BART). When combined with other classifiers, BART improves their predictive accuracy. Further the overall architecture proves to leverage well in resource constrained environments.
