We developed a prototype scalable system for secured bulk SMS service delivery to assist in protecting unsuspecting users against social engineering attacks that cyber criminals use to harvest personal information on mobile networks. The system which is capable of interfacing with bulk SMS applications built using PHP and other scripting languages such as ASP, COLDFUSION and JSP interfaces with a decision engine which employs naïve bayes probability to classify messages and filter SMS message contents. When fraudulent messages are detected, it flags the network and take punitive actions against the user. It was developed using HTML tools and implemented using Object Oriented PHP, JavaScript and MySQL. The system is scalable and can be expanded for more enhancements.
