Email hacking is one of the most common forms of cyber attacks today. It takes place every day and throughout the world. You may be familiar with the email attack that occurred in 2016 during the Presidential Election.
John Podesta fell for a phishing attack, which led to the release of a decade’s worth of emails. The hacker posed as Google and alerted Podesta to change his password because of suspicious activity on his account. By clicking on the link within the email, hackers were granted full access to his inbox.
