    Phishing is a type of fraud designed to steal important sensitive information such as credit card numbers, passwords and bank account data. The fraudulent website is graphically very similar to the original one and invites the users to enter some personal information then used to steal the identity of the person who takes the scam. Other times, the website injects malicious code in the user’s computer. Despite the notable advances made in the last years by the active warning messages for phishing, this attack remains one of the most effective. In this paper we propose an intelligent warning message mechanism, that might limit the effectiveness of phishing attacks and that might increase the user awareness about related risks. It implements an intelligent behavior that, besides warning the users that a phishing attack is occurring, explains why the specific suspect site can be fraudulent.
