Phishing

Phishing is a fraudulent technique used by cybercriminals to trick individuals into revealing sensitive information such as usernames, passwords, credit card details, and social security numbers. It typically involves impersonating a legitimate source, such as a reputable company or organization, and targeting victims through email, text messages, or phone calls.

In a phishing attack, the cybercriminals usually create convincing replicas of legitimate websites, often using similar logos, layouts, and domain names. They then send out mass emails or messages to a wide range of individuals, deceiving them into clicking on malicious links or attachments. These fraudulent communications often claim urgency or offer enticing incentives to manipulate recipients into providing their personal or financial information. Once victims unknowingly provide their sensitive data, the cybercriminals can exploit it for various malicious purposes, including identity theft, financial fraud, and unauthorized account access. Phishing attacks are widespread and require vigilance and awareness to avoid falling victim to these deceptive tactics.
