Malicious links are links that, when clicked, can lead to the installation of malware on your device or the theft of your personal information. These links can be found in emails, on social media, or on websites and can appear to be legitimate. Attackers often use social engineering techniques to trick people into clicking on these links. It’s important to be cautious when clicking on links from unknown sources and to verify the authenticity of the link before clicking on it.
