What online threats are common to emails?
Phishing scams mainly refer to the pop-ups or emails that lead users to go to a malicious website.

Blackmail emails often contain an act of coercion using the threat of revealing or publicizing someone’s information or privacy to the public or their families unless the demands are met. The threats may involve physical, mental or emotional harm, also of criminal prosecution against the victim or someone close to the victim. Mostly, the hackers of these blackmail emails mislead you by using the detailed information of a person close to you to hide themselves.
Malware, short for malicious software, is the software intentionally designed to destroy a computer, server, client, or computer network. It plants executable code, scripts, active content, and other malicious software on a targeted device to make the damage.
A computer virus is a type of malicious software (malware). Computer virus replicates itself by modifying other computer programs and inserting its own code. After successfully replicating, the targeted device is said to be infected by the computer virus.
