What is Spear Phishing?

Spear phishing is a targeted form of phishing where attackers customize their approach to deceive specific individuals or organizations. Unlike broad phishing campaigns, spear phishing involves gathering information about the target to increase the likelihood of a successful attack.

Messages often appear to be from a trusted source and aim to trick recipients into revealing confidential information, clicking on malicious links, or downloading infected attachments. Spear phishing represents a significant threat due to its personalized and deceptive nature.
