Phishing

Olivier van der Toorn & Ramin Yazdani

For the last couple of months Ramin Yazdani has been looking into phishing domains using Unicode characters to appear like the target domain. In this process he developed a new ‘confusables’ table of Unicode characters which can easily be mistaken for their ASCII counterpart. The table is based on the ‘Unicode Confusables list’ and the ‘Unicode Similarity List’.
