Phishing is a novel kind of website/network attack which makes a deceitful attempt and influences the amenities or information security instead of stealing personal, financial and transactional data, etc. To preclude users or network from the phishing different techniques has been proposed and implemented. This paper, present the review of literature about the techniques offered by different researchers for exposing and avoiding from the phishing attack also discusses the advantages and limitation of the approaches.
