Phishing is basically stealing user's personal information (e.g. stealing credit card information or using users banking passwords without any information to the user). Phishing can also be done by making fake web pages as similar as the real, legitimate page and when the user fills information asked in those web pages, they become victim of phishers. There is an urgent need to stop this stealing of information by the phisher and also for the user to be very careful while filling their personal credentials.
