Spear Phishing

Spear phishing is an attempt to entice a specifically targeted victim to open a malicious attachment or visit a malicious website with the intent of gaining insight into confidential data and/or acting on nefarious objectives against the victim’s organization. A common tactic used by an attacker is a spoofed email address designed to look like it’s coming from a source that is trusted by the victim. Reconnaissance and social engineering tactics may also help produce content and wording that makes the delivery email more believable to the victim.
