Monkeyspaw Grabs Phishers

If you want more detail on what's behind that phishing site, you're in luck.

TippingPoint, a division of 3Com, today released Monkeyspaw, an open-source phishing research tool that evaluates a Website's legitimacy and determines who owns the phishing Web server, how it is configured, and where it is located.

Monkeyspaw also lets you report the phishing site to authorities through CastleCops, which sends the data directly to 50 organizations worldwide, including the FBI and Anti-Phishing Working Group. Network administrators can also use the Monkeyspaw tool to block a phishing site based on its IP address. Dark Reading - Desktop Security - Monkeyspaw Grabs Phishers - Security News Analysis
