Phishing is a type of social engineering attack in which an attacker uses fraudulent emails, messages, or websites to trick individuals into divulging sensitive information, such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details.

Phishing attacks are typically carried out through email, but can also occur through text messages, social media, or phone calls. To protect against phishing attacks, individuals and organizations should be cautious when clicking on links or providing personal information in response to unsolicited requests. They should also verify the legitimacy of websites and messages before responding to them, by checking the URL or contacting the organization directly.
