The correct answer is C.

OBJ-3.6: This is an example of a phishing campaign. Phishing refers to obtaining user authentication or financial information through a fraudulent request for information. Phishing is specifically associated with emailing users with a link to a faked site (or some other malware that steals the information they use to try to authenticate). Spear phishing is an email or electronic communications scam targeted towards a specific individual, organization, or business. In this example, the specific user wasn’t targeted by their name or by their association with a particular store, company, or website. Spoofing is a type of attack that disguises a communication from an unknown source as being from a known, trusted source. Spoofing can occur using different methods, such as MAC spoofing, IP spoofing, call spoofing, and others. A zero-day vulnerability is when the vendor is aware of a security flaw, but a patch has not been developed or applied on an affected system. At this point, a malicious actor can craft an attack and take advantage of the zero-day vulnerability.
