We cannot imagine a day without a computer especially without Internet. E-Mail is one of the primary ways through which we communicate. We not only use it every day for official communication but also to be in touch with our friends and relatives. As E-Mail plays a vital role in communication globally for communication and sharing of data as well. The security issues also have increased. The major problem or the attack on E-Mail by the hackers nowadays is known as E-Mail Phishing. It is the right time to secure the data communicated over mail even on trusted network. Cyber criminals craft these emails to look convincing, sending them out to literally millions of people around the world. The criminals do not have a specific target in mind, nor do they know exactly who will fall victim. They simply know the more emails they send out, the more people they may be able to fool. In this paper we are analyzing the various ways in which the Phishing is achieved, the possible solutions and the awareness along with some tips to be away from a victim of Phishing attacks are discussed.
