What is "baiting"?


Recommended Posts

Baiting is, in many ways, like phishing.

The difference is that baiting uses the promise of an item or good to entice victims. For example, baiting attacks may leverage the offer of free music or movie downloads to trick users into handing in their login credentials. Alternatively, they can try to exploit human curiosity via the use of physical media.
