Phishing is a type of cyber attack where attackers attempt to deceive individuals and trick them into revealing their sensitive information, such as usernames, passwords, credit card numbers, or other personal data.
The goal of phishing is to convince the recipient to take a specific action, such as clicking on a malicious link, downloading a harmful attachment, or providing their personal information by posing as a legitimate entity.
Phishing attacks often exploit human psychology, relying on tactics like urgency, fear, curiosity, or social engineering to manipulate the victim into revealing confidential data and that’s how the phishing attackers get the desired results.
