“Phishing” is when you (stupidly) give “consent” –
by telling someone your password, usually by putting your personal information into an email that pretends it has come from your Bank, Credit Union, Mortgageholder etc.
“Hacking” is when your account has been “raped” –
you did not give your consent for them to have your personal information and the access to your password was obtained by an unauthorised assault on your internet being. It usually is designed to get the same information as “phishing”.
Maintaining the highest degree of your personal security online needs your constant vigilence.
