Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Recently, web content uses social engineering techniques to lure victims into clicking on them, originating malware download attacks and online scam.To take countermeasures against these web-based social engineering (SE) attacks, a passive approach that reconstructs the sequence of attack events from network traffic and a forensic system that supports manual browsing have been proposed.However, they have limited ability to collect SE attacks due to their observation range and analysts' skills.In this paper, we propose a browser automation system for collecting SE attacks by simulating a user behavior of web browsing and automatically detecting web elements that lure users to interact with them.Starting from initial 7,798 URLs gathered from a search engine and social media, our proposed system crawled 129,806 URLs and identified 191 malware downloads and 382 malicious domain names.Our experiments demonstrate that our system enables us to effectively collect real-world SE attacks.
