This paper discusses a combined and platform-independent solution to detect websites that fake their identity. The approach combines white-listing, black-listing and heuristic strategies to provide an optimal phishing detection ratio against these so-called phishing websites while at the same time making sure that the number of wrongly classified legitimate websites remains as low as possible. For the implementation, a prototype solution was written in platform-independent Java. Practical challenges during the implementation as well as first practical results will be discussed.
