How to identify a fake email

Identifying and Filtering Malicious Emails

When cybercrime was first on the rise, there were endless ways a hacker could infiltrate your system. Nowadays, most websites, operating systems and applications take a proactive approach to security, patching bugs before they can be used against you.

Phishing emails are designed to replicate emails from known services in order to trick users into downloading an attachment or clicking on a link or providing sensitive details (such as usernames and passwords).
