A Phishing attack is where someone pretends to be something/someone else to gain personal information from you. They do this by imitating official companies such as banks and social media. They then send you an email which will look just like emails from the official source with a link to an official-looking website. This website will ask for you to prove who you are with security questions. All the information entered will be taken by the cybercriminal to use or sell as they wish.
