Understanding the Phishing Landscape

Phishing is a deceptive technique employed by cybercriminals to trick individuals into divulging sensitive information, such as login credentials or financial details. In the context of travel websites, attackers may craft convincing emails, messages, or fake websites, posing as legitimate entities to steal personal information or perpetrate fraud.
