Did You Know...
The word phishing comes from the analogy that Internet scammers
are using e-mail lures to fish for passwords and
financial data from the sea of Internet users. The term
was coined in 1996 by hackers who were stealing AOL Internet
accounts by scamming passwords from unsuspecting AOL users.
Since hackers have a tendency to replacing "f" with "ph" the
term phishing was derived.
