Phishing In the lexicon, the English term is a contraction of the words “Password” (password) and “Fishing” (fish). It is practiced by cyber criminals to access confidential data such as access to an e-mail account data, auction sites or bank connection (e-banking). To do this, the scammers send a lot of emails that indicate the potential victim’s that his/her login details (username and password) to an auction site, for example, are no safer or not up-to-date, and must be reconfirmed via a link in the message. The address of the sender has been falsified, the link in question does not therefore take the user to the page the legitimate site (in this case the auction site), but on a very similar page designed by the scammers. If the user entered personal information on this page, he/she immediately becomes a victim, and cybercriminals will not wait to use this personal data as soon as possible. So do not click on links in messages that seem odd, even if it comes from a relative or friend.
