  • I know I'm being "phished" when I'm led to a fake website, for example, after typing the wrong link. But I donot know the difference between Phishing and Hacking very much. Can you explain them for me?

    Phishing is when you are led to a fake website, such as a fake bank website where someone can get your details when you log on. Hacking is when someone uses software or some other special device that allows someone to enter a users computer without them knowing (or knowing) to get information.

    Phishing and hacking are related in that they both are ways of obtaining info whether it being volountary (input on a website) or involountary (where someone has taken over your system to get what they want).

    Hope this can help you.
