Phishing is a type of cyber attack that uses social engineering tactics to trick individuals into divulging sensitive information, such as usernames, passwords, or credit card numbers. Typically, phishing attacks are carried out through email, instant messaging, or other communication channels, and they often involve a request to click on a malicious link or download an infected attachment. Phishing attacks can be highly effective, as they prey on users’ trust and exploit vulnerabilities in human psychology.
