Scientists Develop Technology for Tracking Website Fraud

Researchers at the University of Arizona say they have developed a prototype system that can detect fake sites based on online fraud that already exists.

The system they developed is more accurate in tracking down fraudulent websites than similar systems that already exist.

Scientists also say that the detection of fake sites is very important, because the majority of users are still not able to detect internet security which ultimately results in great losses.

University of Arizona research team successfully classifies online fraud based on several characteristics such as length of URLs, number of links, literary type, and others. "The problems we face today is quite large.

Phony sites harm the industry billions of dollars. This is what we must prevent, "said Abbasi, a member of the research team.
