Phishing and Social Engineering
Social engineering is a term used to describe a wide range of malicious activities achieved through human interactions. The attacker uses psychological manipulation to trick users into committing security mistakes or disclosing sensitive information. Hackers use deceptive tricks to elicit passwords, bank account details, and other personal information.
