       About PhishTank

       Launched Oct. 2, 2006 to coincide with National Cyber Security Awareness Month, PhishTank, operated by OpenDNS, employs a sophisticated voting system that requires the community to vote "phish" or "notphish,"reducing the possibility of false positives and improving the overall breadth and coverage of the phishing data. PhishTank makes all phishing data it accumulates public and available via programmable APIs, which allow other software developers to incorporate the anti-phishing data into their tools. The open access is intended to encourage the sharing of information and increase the chance of eliminating phishing all together. For more information about PhishTank, please visit www.phishtank.com.
