Phishing attack

    A phishing attack is a common computer-based attack method used to obtain sensitive information from an unknowing victim, such as email addresses, private key addresses, mobile phone numbers, and credit card details. To gain access to accounts, malicious third parties pose as trustworthy entities such as coworkers or institutions of authority in phishing attacks. While phishing attacks are a common type of technological crime, they are more of a confidence trick than a hack.
