English term or phrase:“Phish” as in “phishing,”
What is this, a change of topic? I’ve gotten tired of network security and am turning to sports news? Or old-time rock ‘n’ roll?
No, not the watery animal, nor the band “Phish” - “Phish” as in “phishing,” the word coined by taking “fishing” and using hacker-style spelling (as in “phreaking”). Phishing, as you’re probably aware, is a form of social engineering in which criminals send out spam with forged headers to draw gullible people to fake Web sites where they enter sensitive information such as account numbers, user IDs and passwords. These data are then used for direct financial fraud or wider identity theft.
