Phishing is a threat that acquire sensitive information such as username, password etc through online. Phishing often takes place in email spoofing or instant messaging .Phishing email contains messages like ask the users to enter the personal information so that it is easy for hackers to hack the information. This paper presents an overview about various phishing attacks and various techniques to protect the information.
