Q: What makes phishing different from viruses and other threats-and what can I do to protect myself against it?
A: The biggest differentiator between phishing and other threats such as viruses is the intent behind the attack. Many writers of viruses, worms, and other malware seek to inflict damage on users' computers or files, while others want the notoriety that can come with a successful attack that spreads far and wide. Phishers, on the other hand, could care less about inflicting damage on users' hardware and software - and they have no interest in getting themselves into the headlines. On the contrary, phishing scams are designed specifically to operate under the radar, with their writers choosing fortune over fame.
