Default Phishing attacks: Why is email still such an easy target for hackers?

This article is from ZDNet:

Phishing attacks: Why is email still such an easy target for hackers? | ZDNet

The majority of cyber attacks begin with one simple phishing email. So will it ever be possible to close this door to hackers, once and for all?

Email is incredibly useful, which is why we all still use it. But chief among its downsides (along with getting caught in a group-cc'd message hell) is that email remains one of the most common routes for hackers to attack businesses.
