What is Phishing

Phishing is the act of sending fake, misleading, or fraudulent messages in an attempt to trick recipients into providing personal information. This type of activity has been commonplace on the Internet for many years (since 1996). Avoid being the victim of Phishing e-mails. Exercise critical thinking when receiving any message asking for personal information. Learn more about Phishing by visiting these links from Wikipedia, Microsoft, Norman, and US-CERT.
