Abstract [en]

Phishing is a growing problem. Most current research about mitigating damages from or preventing such attacks is aimed at either preventing users from receiving and clicking links to fraudulent sites, or using indicators to show the user whether a visited site can be trusted. This thesis focuses on education of the user for situations where a link has already been clicked, raising awareness of available security indicators. This is done using an implementation of a framework developed by Dr. Marcus Nohlberg to provide micro-training within and about the context of e-commerce. An experiment using two groups of students, and four webshops created for the experiment, show positive results for the group receiving micro-training from the framework implementation
