virustotal += OpenPhish URL scanner

We keep increasing the number of engines integrated in virustotal's URL scanning backbone. Today is the turn of OpenPhish. OpenPhish is a service developed by FraudSense, whose engine was integrated a couple of weeks ago, that serves as a free repository of phishing sites detected with FraudSense's Phishing Detection Technology.

In their own words:
OpenPhish is a free service that provides a continuously updated feed of global phishing URLs that were detected by FraudSense's Phishing Detection Technology. The feed includes phishing sites from the past 7 days and is updated in real time with newly detected ones.
The feed is publicly available at:
http://www.openphish.com/

It is also served as plain text at the following URL:
http://www.openphish.com/feed.txt

An example of a report containing an OpenPhish report can be found below:

Hopefully this new addition will beef up virustotal's detection capabilities when it comes to phishing sites, which even though is an old scam, it is still very extended and a common threat for the average Internet user.

Welcome OpenPhish!

  7. Hello there,much obliged for your decent writing.OpenPhish is like PhishTank in that it gives real-time information about the URLs that have been identified as phishing.However the distinction comprises in the way that it gives the targeted brand on the main page and,all the more essentially,it offers knowledge about the cyber crooks,gathered from FraudSense's systems.Good day.
