Phishing websites are fake addresses that cheat the victims, passing by legitimate sites from banks or companies to obtain personal information without their consent. Looking to solve this problematic, several ways of defense were put into practice, among them the Machine Learning (ML). This article presents an study about ML utilization on malicious websites detection, reporting the methods used and concluding about their impact on precision and relevance.
