Instant messaging is very appealing and relatively new class of social interaction. Instant Messengers (IMs) and Social Networking Sites (SNS) may contain messages which are capable of causing harm, which are untraced, leading to obstruction for network communication and cyber security. User ignorance towards the use of communication services like Instant Messengers, emails, websites, social networks etc, is creating favourable conditions for cyber threat activity. It is required to create technical awareness in users by educating them to create a suspicious detection application which would generate alerts for the user so that suspicious messages are not ignored. Very limited research contributions were available in for detection of suspicious cyber threat activity in IM. A context based, dynamic and intelligent suspicious detection methodology in IMs is proposed, to analyse and detect cyber threat activity in Instant Messages with relevance to domain ontology (OBIE) and utilizes the Association rule mining for generating rules and alerting the victims, also analyses results with high ratio of precision and recall. The results have proved improvisation over the existing methods by showing the increased percentage of precision and recall.
