Hi,welcome to Knowledgesuttra. Phishing, one of the most popular type of attack in cyber world. previously we had uploaded blog regarding to types of attacks in cyber world . Let’s take deep dive into it ,and understand what is Phishing .Maximum time we made fool by an organization or a person who starts messaging like
“Hooola, I got $100 from this link visit here http://get-100$.com, register using facebook/google and get $10 for registration share link with 10 friends to get remaining $90.”
Hackers caught us on the huge platforms including Social Media like Facebook, WhatsApp, LinkedIn, Twitter,etc. They know very well that where their audience is interested, sometime that message could be changed, and after also you get hacked.
