Phishing is a method employed by cybercriminals to access email accounts and systems using deception rather than defeating security protections. In basic phishing attacks, cybercriminals send an email that appears to be legal, tempting the victim to open an attachment or click on a link. This click could result in loading malware onto the victim’s computer or it could take the victim to a realistic-looking website. In several cases, the aim is to capture user credentials without the knowledge of the victim. Cybercriminals have discovered that it is usually easier to delude a victim into clicking a link instead of breaking through technology defenses.
A phishing email is a fake email that appears to be like a crucial communication sent by a popular website or a bank. This email puts forth a tone of urgency and thus succeeds in tricking you into downloading an attachment or clicking on a link.
You will be taken to a fake website when you click on a link in a phishing email. This website could just drop a virus on your device or it could ask you to share classified information.
In many cases, downloading an attachment will infect your computer with a virus.
Phishing by SMS
This phishing attack that uses SMS is known as SmiShing. You will get an SMS, for instance, a WhatsApp message, informing you about an incredible offer. In this SMS you will be asked to redeem the offer by clicking on a link. After you click this link, you will be taken to a fake website that could infect your device with a virus or ask you to share confidential information.
Phishing by call
In a phishing call scam, you will get a phone call from a person acting like a bank manager, a software firm employee, or a known organization. This phishing call aims at tricking you into sharing private and vital details such as ATM PIN, expiry date, CVV, debit card number, and OTP.
