In today’s internet era various websites through which a number of individuals purchase items. There are certain online forums which request their users to provide confidential data such as card number, cvv, pin number etc. for various malicious practices. These websites are referred as Phishing Websites. Therefore, to distinguish between the authentic website and the malicious website we suggested an intelligent, adaptable, and efficient model that utilizes Machine learning techniques. We carry through the project using the algorithm of classification and different methods to gather the phishing websites dataset to verify its validity. These spoofing websites are differentiated on certain significant attribute such as encryption standards, Domain Identity, URL and security. The project will utilize machine learning concept thus informing the user if the website is legal or not. This software is highly secured and can be utilized by many E-commerce ventures so as to provide hassle free transaction. Machine Learning design utilized in the project gives good results when compared with other standard classification algorithms. Detection of Phishing web site is ML intelligent and effective model that’s supported victimization classification or association data processing algorithms. The algorithms we are using here is logistic regression. We are also using decision tree classifier so that we can make a point-to-point comparison between them which will help us to know parameters like accuracy and time taken.
