Phishing is another smart hacking technique used as a baited trap by hackers to steal your personal details like name, address, passwords, credit card numbers, etc. Hackers create phishing sites with familiar logos, mottos and graphics which are fake web pages but look similar to their own bank or usual surfing stuffs and excite users to enter their personal details. They may even mail you fake messages demanding to recover your lost details. Again a trap..!! So users, beware of such baits. Do not respond to any such mails and do check for a lock sign in the URL before entering your personal details. Read more about hacking and types of hacking.
