SCM is a Firefox extension that performs Site Continuity Management validations on websites to help prevent Pharming attacks.
Pharming attacks are an advanced form of Phishing where an adversary poisons the data held in the user’s DNS server. SCM is believed to be the first add-on to protect users from this advanced attack.
SCM was developed at Cambridge University by Simon A. Spacey and is currently in a POC development release. For technical information about SCM you can read the release paper at:

· This version of SCM is a stand-alone client version that builds on the domain priority class functionality introduced in version 0.8.1182988888 to reduce false positives and allow a greater depth of Pharming protection.
