Homographic Spoofing: a new Ruby toolkit

Homograph characters look the same or very similar to other characters, but are different. For example, the letters “l” and “ӏ” (Cyrrilic “ӏ”) look the same but are different characters. A homograph attack is a phishing attack where the attacker uses homograph characters to spoof another identity. Homograph attacks became a real security concern after the introduction of Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs), which allowed domain names to contain Unicode characters. For example, a malicious actor could send you a fake reset password email from “support@paypaӏ.com” (note the Cyrrilic “ӏ”) with a link to their phishing website “https://paypaӏ.com” that looks like PayPal (and has a valid SSL certificate) stealing your credentials.
