Phishing is probably one of the most common types of cyber attack that exists, it is a practice that goes back to the dawn of the internet. The goal? to get you to click on a link so that the scammer/hacker can execute the malpractice of their choosing. Still practiced to this day, this type of cyber attack is portrayed in nostalgic films where a character might be browsing the web and land on a page telling them that they have just won a million pounds.

Now in 2020 phishing has become a whole different story, some of these elaborate phishing techniques are becoming so efficient at what they were designed for that a large number of people still fall victim to this modern method of crime. Just how efficient is this method nowadays?
