Phishing is popular with cybercriminals, it’s a trick for users. Because it enables them to steal sensitive financial and personal information without having to break through the security defenses of a computer or network.
A phishing campaign is carried out by email spoofing; an email directs the recipient to enter personal information at a fake website that looks identical to the legitimate site. It is also used to distribute malware through links and attachments.
Even if you’re an ordinary citizen, you would still want to protect your family members, friends, and relatives. You might be responsible for a network of some kind and need to keep would-be thieves out, whether at home or corporate. In every case it is our own responsibility to be prudent and to educate ourselves.
