Numerous anti- phishing techniques are in vogue to discriminate fake and the authentic website but are not effective. This research, focuses on the relevant URLs features that discriminate between legitimate and malicious/phishing URLs. The impact of email phishing can be largely reduced by adopting an appropriate combination of all these features with classification techniques. Therefore, an Enhanced Malicious URLs Detection (EMUD) model is developed with machine learning techniques for better classification and accurate results.
