Current solutions to tackle phishing employ blocklists that are built from user reports or automatic approaches. They, however, fall short in detecting zero-day phishing attacks. We propose the use of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) to automate the generation of new squatting candidates starting from a list of benign URLs. The candidates can be either manually verified or become part of a training set for existing machine learning models. Our results show that GANs can produce squatting candidates, some of which are previously unknown existing phishing domains.

Abstract

Current solutions to tackle phishing employ blocklists that are built from user reports or automatic approaches. They, however, fall short in detecting zero-day phishing attacks. We propose the use of Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) to automate the generation of new squatting candidates starting from a list of benign URLs. The candidates can be either manually verified or become part of a training set for existing machine learning models. Our results show that GANs can produce squatting candidates, some of which are previously unknown existing phishing domains.
