Phishing web pages are the forged web pages that are created by the malicious people to mimic real web pages.

Now a days Phishing has became a major internet problem through out the world.

When an unwary internet users opens such kind of phishing web pages their personal information will be hacked, which causes a huge lose to the people.

For example if they enter any sensitive information like Bank passwords all those are directly saved in that forged websites.

To avoid such problem a method called EMD(Earth Mover's Distance) is proposed.

The EMD is used to calculate the visual similarities between two web pages by converting web pages into web images and then calculate the signature of the web pages.

Based on that value it classifies whether is is original or Phished web page.

The future scope of this problem is an application called site watcher client is proposed.

When we install this application in our PC it will automatically alert us when any one opens phished web page.
