Phishing is a kind of online security attack where the attacker creates a replica of an existing web page to fool users in order to hack their personal, financial, or password data. The statistics today reveal that the current Anti-Phishing system has failed to prevent Phishing completely. In this paper an Anti-Phishing algorithm is proposed which is termed as Phish-Secure. Phish-Secure use the concept of Image Similarity Detection so as to identify the exact site the user tends to visit. Phish-Secure is simple, secure and efficient. In terms of simplicity, Phish-Secure utilize a three factor authentication system which successfully detects and prevents all Phishing attacks. In terms of security, Phish-Secure can detect not only known but also unknown Phishing attacks. Phish-Secure identifies and verifies the destination address from the outbound packet which establishes the connection with the remote server, thereby verifying whether the user is connected to the server which he actually tends to connect. In terms of efficiency, Phish-Secure will integrate a system which performs an actual URL verification and the traditional Blacklisting technique, thus reducing the time taken to detect Phishing. Thus Phish-Secure will successfully counterattack Phishing.
