An example of a phishing email, disguised as an official email from a (fictional) bank.

The sender is attempting to trick the recipient into revealing confidential information by "confirming" it at the phisher's website.

Communications purporting to be from social web sites, auction sites, banks, online payment processors or IT administrators are often used to lure victims.

Phishing emails may contain links to websites that distribute malware.

The term whaling has been coined for spear phishing attacks directed specifically at senior executives and other high-profile targets.

In these cases, the content will be crafted to target an upper manager and the person's role in the company.

Once the phone number (owned by the phisher, and provided by a voice over IP service) was dialled, prompts told users to enter their account numbers and PIN.

Vishing (voice phishing) sometimes uses fake caller-ID data to give the appearance that calls come from a trusted organization.

These types of attacks (known as cross-site scripting) are particularly problematic, because they direct the user to sign in at their bank or service's own web page, where everything from the web address to the security certificates appears correct.

In reality, the link to the website is crafted to carry out the attack, making it very difficult to spot without specialist knowledge. To avoid anti-phishing techniques that scan websites for phishing-related text, phishers sometimes use Flash-based websites (a technique known as phlashing).
