Libphish is a cross-platform library to interact with the Open Phishing Database. Libphish provides a consistent API that browsers and other HTTP clients can use to in order to have anti-phishing capabilities such as verifying the risk level and safety of URLs.
The Open Phishing Database project is an effort to create and maintain and open database of phishing sites, in addition to providing browser extensions which utilise this database in order to provide users with a safer browsing experience.
There are currently several modules under development within the framework of the Open Phishing Database project:
· libphish is a cross-platform library to interact with the Open Phishing Database, in order to provide a consistent API which browsers and other programs can use to verify the safety and risk level of URLs.
· Anti-phishing toolbars for the Firefox and Konqueror web browsers which utilise the Open Phishing Database through the use of libphish.
