General Question about Phishing and Spoofing
Posted on 2013-06-12
Can some one explain or direct me to a good link that explains Phishing and Spoofing, Are they the same thing.
I know what Phishing is, but the part I'm kinda of confused about is the way the emails comes in.
Yesterday we got emails from a Wells Fargo address like.. email@example.com. so it looks leiget from the address. But once we see the email we totally know its a Phishing email, but what i don't get is when we look this email up in our spam filter its shows the actual email that it came from and not firstname.lastname@example.org.
Example, in our spam filter, it shows.. something like this. email@example.com as the actual sender and doesn't show firstname.lastname@example.org. How can some one do this, and is there a way to protect from this. And is this considered spoofing?
thanks for any help
