- The ways that phishing spread
1. Through virus
Criminals clone a totally same website like bingX.com, and send the fake website address to users’ computers with some virus programs and junkware, or put the address on a search website to cheat users to log on to get users’ username, password, trade information or assets.
2. Through SMS
Criminals send cheating SMS messages to users, claiming that users won prizes or their accounts are stolen, asking users to log on the website whose address is in the message to verify his or her identity, and the website is launched by criminals, which is a fake one just to get users’information. If users log on to the website and operate, then users’information like username, password will be known by the criminals.
3. Setting up a fake website
Criminals launched a fake website, and then post fake activity information on social media, this activity makes an empty promise, when users log on to the fake website, their usernames and passwords will be known by the criminals.

- To prevent phishing
- Use a relatively safe browser like Chrome and update to the latest version;
Notes: Chrome is a google product, its good safety performance is well known to all, updating to the latest version is because that the low version one has lots of loopholes, like Punycode phishing attack link: https://blog.csdn.net/qq_27446553/article/details/70255763
- Don't install browser plug-ins without discretion;
Notes: Browser plug-ins have very high authority, and there is a risk of hacking, like the Chrome User-Agent Switcher back door incident. (https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=14889619)
