What is Phishing?
Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information like login information or other personal identification information (PII), which is any data that could potentially identify a specific individual, such as:
- credit card details,
- SSN (Social Security Number),
- bank account information,
- phone number,
- secret question answers
Even partial information can increase the chances of success to subsequent social engineering attacks.
