We introduce tools to model and describe phishing attacks, allowing a visualization and quantification of the threat on a given complex system of web services. We use our new model to describe some new phishing attacks, some of which belong to a new class of abuse introduced herein: the context aware phishing attacks. We describe ways of using the model we introduce to quantify the risks of an attack by means of economic analysis, and methods for defending against the attacks described.
