Phishing is an attempt to trick you to open a malicious email and open any attachments or links therein. The email deceptively appears to come from a recognized or reputed source like the government, your favorite online store or worse, a customer, supplier or a vendor. Once opened, these malicious emails usually contain a URL, or attachments that may be used to install malware or extract sensitive data. Your security and data integrity is quickly compromised with this phishing attempt.
The term itself appeared as an internet terminology in the early 90s and is a homophone of fishing. Phishing attacks have dramatically increased over the past few years and are fast becoming a cyber criminal’s weapon of choice.
