How phishing can help hackers intercept sensitive information about their victims

How phishing can help hackers intercept sensitive information about their victims

Phishing [1] is a technique used to intercept credit card information. It involves sending emails or building websites that look like they are from real companies but are not.

Victims follow links from emails, enter their credit card information, and in some cases, are even redirected to the spoofed company so the phishing looks innocuous.
