In the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity, it has become increasingly crucial to protect sensitive information and assets from the relentless onslaught of cyber threats. The U.S. Government has shed light on some popular phishing techniques that hackers employ to compromise security and steal valuable data. Phishing, characterized by its deceptive tactics, is often the initial stage of more extensive cyberattacks, leading to data breaches, ransomware attacks, identity theft, and other serious consequences.
Phishing for Credentials
One of the most common phishing tactics involves hackers impersonating individuals you trust and coercing you into disclosing your login credentials. Once in possession of this information, hackers can gain unauthorized access to your systems and resources.
Phishing with Malware
Another phishing technique used by hackers involves posing as a trustworthy source and enticing you to engage with malicious links or email attachments, which can deliver malware to your devices.
