According to a MacAffee report, SMiShing(SMS phishing) has continued to grow in popularity as a social engineering tool for cybercriminals. What SMiShing does is that it tricks the user into clicking on a link in a text message; and that link goes to a page prompting the user to enter personal data. The objective is to gain access to sensitive information like usernames and passwords. On top of that, many SMiShing messages will include links with malware waiting on the other side for anyone who clicks on them.

This has implications, especially if employees are not well-informed on security threats that might leak sensitive data by accident.
