The detection of phishing websites and identifying their target are imperative. Among several phishing detection schemes, the scheme using visual similarity is gathering attention. It takes a screenshot of website and stores it to the database. If the inputted website''s screenshot is similar to database''s one, it is judged as phishing. However, if multiple similar websites exist, the first inputted website is regarded as legitimate. As a result, it cannot correctly detect legitimate website and identifying phishing target becomes difficult. As a second shortcoming, if the screenshot of phishing website is locally different from ones in the database, false negative occurs. In this paper, we propose visual similarity-based phishing detection scheme using image and CSS with target website finder. To remedy first shortcoming, we focus on the fact that legitimate websites are often linked by other websites and regard such website as legitimate and store the screenshot and CSS in the database. Since CSS is a file which defines the websites visual contents, attackers often steal legitimate CSS to mimic the legitimate website. Thus, by detecting the website which plagiarizes appearance or CSS of legitimate website, we detect phishing website and its target simultaneously. Moreover, we can alleviate the second shortcoming by using CSS because it is probable that the websites which have locally different appearance use identical CSS. By computer simulation with real dataset, we demonstrate our scheme improves detection accuracy while finding phishing target.
