Phishing is a technique that deceit people to obtain data from users. The social engineer tries to impersonate genuine website webpage like yahoo or face-book and will ask the user to enter their password and account ID.

It can be prevented by:

☛ Communicating personal information through secure websites only
☛ Download files or attachments in emails from unknown senders
☛ Never e-mail financial information
☛ Beware of links in e-mails that ask for personal information
☛ Ignore entering personal information in a pop-up screen
