Phishing is when criminals attempt to lure personal and financial information, or passwords from unsuspecting individuals and businesses through emails disguised as credible sources. These emails can appear with a detailed description, or displayed as a receiving error, requiring the recipient to click on a link to view the message. They can also appear as a false invoice or confirmation of a purchasing contract that requires recipients to review an unfamiliar document. Accessing these corrupted files or links can result in a hacker getting ahold of your private information.
