Using Deep Learning to Prevent Deceptive Unicode Phishing Attacks
Thursday, Oct 6, 2022
Unicode has unified characters from world languages, symbols and emoji into a single standard enabling easy interoperable communications. However, in recent years the availability of similar symbols from diverse languages is being exploited to deceive users for malicious ends. Deep learning has given us the tool to prevent these attacks. You will be shown how this exploit works and how to detect and prevent it by training a Deep learning model to detect visual similarities between characters.
