Japanese researchers unveil eavesdropping phishing detector
A Japanese bank and National police agency have deployed voice recognition technology capable of catching up phishing scams almost every time.
In development since 2009, the technology by Fujitsu and Nagoya University is claimed to be a world's first, with researchers saying it is capable of analysing phone conversations to “detect situations in which one party might 'over trust' the other party”.
By blending voice detection with changes in voice pitch - an indication of so-called 'overtrust', combined with the a keyword list with words commonly seen in phishing scams such as 'indebtedness' and 'compensation', the researchers say the technology is 90% accurate and when a scam is detected, the system would notify a third party to help assist the victim.
