Phishing is a type of online fraud that consists of sending messages by email, SMS, instant messaging or even social networks to impersonate the identity of any known organisation and obtain private and confidential information (passwords, bank details, etc.). These messages try to get you to click on a link that redirects you to a fake page, to act immediately and avoid possible consequences.
Is this type of cyber-attack common?
Phishing attacks are becoming increasingly common and sophisticated, and most of the time they succeed in deceiving people, who feel that their own security has been compromised.
How can I identify a phishing attempt?
Many excuses are used as a threat to redirect us to fake websites that pretend to be legitimate. Be wary if these messages ask you to change your bank details, ask for urgent updates, to pick up packages that you have not requested, last payment notifications, offers or prizes that are very beneficial...
