Phishing

is a way of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as
usernames,

passwords

and credit card details by masquerading as a
trustworthy entity in an

electronic communication
. This is similar
to

Fishing
, where the fisherman puts a bait at the hook, thus, pretending
to be a genuine food for fish. But the hook inside it takes the complete fish
out of the lake. Communications purporting to be from popular social web
sites, auction sites, online payment processors or IT administrators are
commonly used to lure the unsuspecting public. Phishing is typically
carried out by

e
-
mail

spoofing

or

instant messaging
,

and it often directs
users to enter details at a fake website whose

look and feel

are almost
identical to the legitimate one. Phishing is an example of

social
engineering

techniques used to deceive users,

and exploits the poor
usability of current web security technologies.

Attempts to deal with the
growing number of reported phishing incidents include

legislation
, user
training, public awareness, and technical security measures.

I think that phishing is a bad way to do
because phishing is the way to get
another info such as email and
password or another word for phishing
is hacking and use another info to do
bad things.
