The Ultimate Guide to Phishing
Generally associated with unsolicited emails sent by a hacker to a wide range of targets, phishing is a ‘bait and switch’ tactic designed to trick targets into revealing personal information such as passwords or credit card details. The phishing email purports to be from a known party such as a bank or a colleague and requests a response which can include redirection to a spoof website where (for example) the target is encouraged to bank usernames or passwords. Phishing is a form of social engineering.
