Phishing is the criminally fraudulent process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Phishing is an example of social engineering techniques used to fool users. The most common method of phishing is by sending misleading e-mails that point to web sites masquerading as legitimate account holding institutions.
For World of Warcraft Edit
For World of Warcraft players, the most frequently encountered type of phishing are e-mails that pretend to be sent from Blizzard Entertainment, but usually point to some domain or URL that sound similar to a legitimate one, but is not.
