In the age of the internet, there is an enormous number of online transactions performed every day; therefore security and privacy of online transactions and banking websites is a challenging task. Website phishing attacks are carried out by presenting a fake website as a genuine one in order to gain confidential information and using that for some non-genuine activities. In this work, the Bagging technique is used with neural network and LMT classifiers as base classifiers in ensemble to classify a set of URLs and to determine the URLs as phishing or legitimate so that a user can be secured from phishing attacks. In this work, we have obtained an accuracy of 90%.
