Abstract

Phishing attacks still pose a significant problem and purely technical solutions cannot solve this problem. While research literature in general shows that educating users in security is hard, the Anti-Phishing Landing Page proposed by CMU researchers seems promising as it appears in the most teachable moment -- namely once someone clicked on a link and was very likely to fall for phishing. While this page is already in use and exists in many languages we show that it is not effective in Germany as most users leave the page immediately without having read any advice. We therefore explore options to adopt their ideas for Germany. We focus on which are the trustworthy institutes that could provide such a landing page on their web pages and what is an appropriate headline and design.
