Phishing is a common attack vector used to steal personal information from users. It can take many forms, including email, social networking, or website phishing attacks.
phishing/Social engineering attack is a hacking method where a hacker imitates the most frequently visited website and lures the victim in by delivering a fake link.
Once the intended victim attempts to log in or input some information, the hacker uses the Trojan that is running on the false site to obtain that victim’s sensitive information.
That may be a false payment gateway website or a fake social networking website, or it could be a clone of the most popular website, and if you enter any private data, such as a password or any other secret information, it could be stolen by a hacker, attacker, or phisher.
