What is a phishing attack?
Phishing is a criminal activity using social engineering techniques (an online identity theft technique). Phishers attempt to fraudulently acquire sensitive information, such as passwords and credit card details, by masquerading as a trustworthy person or business in an electronic communication. Phishing is typically carried out using email or an instant message, although phone contact has been used as well.
