What Is Phishing and How to Avoid the Bait



What do you think a fishing attack looks like?

This? Or this?


Ugh, not quite.

In this instance, we're spelling "fishing" with a PH, and it's one of the most common online scams around.

So what is it?

Say you receive an email from your bank.

They're asking you to log in to your account and update your details - they've even provided a handy link that will take you straight to the relevant page. Great. Except, that email isn't from your bank. . .

It's from me.

And I've set up a very convincing website that looks just like your bank's site.
