Phishing Emails

 

 

As per the "United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT)", Phishing is a form of social engineering that uses email or malicious websites (among other channels: SMS, phone calls, embedded links, etc…) to solicit personal information from an individual or company by posing as a trustworthy organization or entity. Phishing attacks often use email as a vehicle, sending email messages to users that appear to be from an institution or company that the individual conducts business with, such as banking or financial institution.


One of the most used "Phishing" tactics is sending an email that appears to be from a legitimate source asking you to provide personal information (i.e.: financial information). This fraudulent attempt is to acquire sensitive information (i.e.: usernames, passwords and PINs, etc... ) by tricking you into taking the attackers desired action, clicking on an embedded link or opening an attachment in a spoofed email.
