Phishing was first litigated in 2004 against a teenager in California who imitated the website America Online (AOL.com). The fake website enabled him to get sensitive data from users and max out their credit cards’ data to empty their accounts.
The fake email contains a link to a forged website. The attacker hopes to trick the user into clicking the link in the email, which directs the user to a fake website that looks identical to a reputable website. The website prompts the user to log in. The user, believing the website is real, attempts to log in by providing their username and password, unintentionally giving away their login credentials to the attacker.
