Abstract:Phishing is a widespread threat that has attracted a lot of attention from the security community. A significant amount of research has focused on designing automated mitigation techniques. However, these techniques have largely only proven successful at catching previously witnessed phishing campaigns. Characteristics of phishing emails and web pages were thoroughly analyzed, but not enough emphasis was put on exploring alternate attack vectors. Novel education approaches were shown to be effective at teaching users to recognize phishing attacks and are adaptable to other kinds of threats. In this thesis, we explore a large amount of existing literature on phishing and present a comprehensive taxonomy of the current state of phishing research. With our extensive literature review, we will illuminate both areas of phishing research we believe will prove fruitful and areas that seem to be oversaturated.
