Phishing is the combination of social engineering and technical exploits designed which creates a replica of an existing Web page to fool users (e.g., by using specially designed e-mails or instant messages) into submitting sensitive information such as online banking passwords and credit card details, personal and financial information by masquerading as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. Phishing is a new type of network attack which constitutes more than half of all security incidents on the internet. Email based online phishing is critical security thread on the internet. More and more user are suffering from email based phishing attack over a last few year. Phishing email contains messages to lure victims into performing certain action, such as clicking on URL where phishing site is hosted. This paper present overview about phishing email attack, its classification and preventing approaches. Email phishing attacks fabricate the email`s origin. Unfortunately, current email server systems cannot authenticate the genuineness of incoming emails.
