Phishing is one of the most well-known types of cyber attacks that ordinary people may eventually suffer. This has a lot to do with the types of activities that hackers can carry out after they initiate a phishing attack. Many people tend to think that phishing attacks are not that serious, but after all, it is important to note that they can actually be a very serious problem considering the speed at which attackers gain access.

After they receive your data through the aforementioned phishing attacks, they immediately send it to your account. A recent study by the anti-phishing company Agari found that about half of phishing attacks result in illegal logins within 12 hours.

These attacks, more precisely around 23%, will more or less cause the account to be destroyed immediately, and those affected by these attacks should be aware of this. This is done to allow illegal access to the company where this person works, which is also particularly important in the business world. Approximately 44 groups involved in phishing attacks participated in this study.

Half of these groups are in Nigeria, which shows that this African country does have problems that seriously affect the online safety of all kinds of people. The study also found that 91% of phishing accounts were accessed within a week, which means that if a company discovers that any of its employees have been subjected to some type of phishing attack, the best option for them is to resolve it immediately problem.
