Detecting and identifying any phishing websites in real-time, particularly for e-banking, is really a complex and dynamic problem involving many factors and criteria. Because of the subjective considerations and the ambiguities involved in the detection, fuzzy data mining techniques can be an effective tool in assessing and identifying phishing websites for e-banking since it offers a more natural way of dealing with quality factors rather than exact values. In this paper, we present novel approach to overcome the ‘fuzziness’ in the e-banking phishing website assessment and propose an intelligent resilient and effective model for detecting e-banking phishing websites. The proposed model is based on fuzzy logic combined with data mining algorithms to characterize the e-banking phishing website factors and to investigate its techniques by classifying the phishing types and defining six e-banking phishing website attack criteria’s with a layer structure. Our experimental results showed the significance and importance of the e-banking phishing website criteria (URL & Domain Identity) represented by layer one and the various influence of the phishing characteristic on the final e-banking phishing website rate.
