On the client side, Firefox comes with built-in phishing protection.

On the server side, ClamAV lets you use phishing signatures.

Wouldn't a unified threat management solution already include anti-phishing technology?

I currently run a fortinet unit on my gateway, and it automatically blocks phishing and pharming
My anti-spam solution blocks phishing emails
My Checpoint UTM-1 Firewall also has the capability to run those services.. (at a higher price of course)

so I would think a UTM solution would cover this already as well..


http://www.untangle.com/
Untangle handles anti-phishing among other things..

Code:
Untangle
Open Source Apps

    * Web Filter
    * Spam Blocker
    * Firewall
    * Spyware Blocker
    * Virus Blocker
    * Protocol Control
    * Intrusion Prevention
    * OpenVPN
    * Phish Blocker
    * Attack Blocker
    * Reports
    * Routing & QoS
[Edit Update]
I just took a closer look at Untangle. I may replace my undersized fortinet box with this.. Downloading now for testing.. this thinkg looks pretty sweet from the Demo vid, and I can purchase JUST teh AD integration part for about $150.00 a year. I think I just sold myself on an new system. and it will be less expensive than my current fortinet Supppoort contract which is pretty reasonable as it is..

Watch the Demo video at their site. They did a nice job on thie front end for this system.

Sweet Rack !!

Why can't you just add phishing signatures to whatever anti-virus you are using?

If you're using ClamAV it already comes with tons of phishing signatures for both email and HTML. I did a search of their database a minute ago and it returned almost 2,500 results. If you wanna add your own signatures I gave you a link to a HOWTO above.

But Clam AV is anti virus so it gets up only when upload or download is made

I mean how will it detect just simple HTML request?

Couple it with something like HAVP perhaps?
