What is PHISHING?

What is PHISHING?

Do you remember the movie “Home Alone”, there’s the ‘police officer’ who visited the McCallisters. Although he was a burglar, his convincing police officer impersonation led the them to volunteer information about where they were going and for how long. He was ‘phishing’ for information.
