Phishing Through Time: A Ten Year Story based on Abstracts

Ana Ferreira, Pedro Vieira-Marques

Abstract

For a researcher interested in phishing, it would be useful to access an overview of phishing evolution through time, where a set of methods, tools, solutions, user studies, type of attacks, countermeasures and so on, could be acquired from a single story. This story is essential for the security community to improve on existing research as well as build new effective countermeasures to face phishing attacks. However, no systematic review exists in the literature providing a wide overview of all phishing topics. Available reviews usually focus on one or two at a time. In fact, since there is widely available and varied literature on phishing, making a comprehensive review can take a long time and be cumbersome. This paper describes a method to perform a review on abstracts of 605 scientific papers selected from major online research databases, between 2006 and 2016. The study uses a qualitative categorization software to, for the first time, achieve a story of phishing trends in its existing research strands for that period. According to obtained results, no single solution for the phishing threat could yet be found and most research is turning now into more integrated socio-technical and human related solutions.
