Phishing is still a prevalent issue in today’s Internet. It can have financial or personal consequences. Attacks continue to become more and more sophisticated and the advanced ones (including spear phishing) can only be detected if people carefully check URLs.

Throughout several levels information is provided and phishing detection is exercised.
