What is Phishing?

It is a type of computer attack that consists in deceiving a person by impersonating the entity of another person or organisation. They are very typical in the form of phone calls, SMS or emails that request bank details pretending to be the bank itself, to later steal all the money from the account. They are also often used as a gateway for more sophisticated attacks, such as installing ransomware on your computer.
