Spoofing and phishing in Polish law – current regulations and proposed changes

What is spoofing and phishing?

Both spoofing and phishing are methods of fraud using telecommunications and the Internet, but they differ in how they are used. Spoofing involves broadly impersonating the IP address of another device, telephone number, email address or DNS server. Everything is camouflaged in such a way that the identification of the real user or caller is impossible. The easiest to recognise is email spoofing. The content of the message sent by someone impersonating a chosen e-mail address indicates the intention of spoofing confidential information from the addressee of the message. Phone number spoofing is carried out using easily accessible websites that, for a fee, allow you to make a call from any phone number and change the voice or convert the text into a voice that the person answering the phone will hear. Detection of such spoofing is only possible after the fact, when checking the billing of the number called and impersonated. IP address and DNS server spoofing is the most difficult to detect, as it may differ only slightly from the real one. The essence of phishing is reflected in its pronunciation, which is similar to the word “fishing”. It consists in preparing a “lure” for the user, e.g. by means of a link sent in an e-mail message, SMS or via instant messenger, and then either installing malicious software on the device or phishing for login data. The fraudster may impersonate e.g. a bank, government agency, courier company or a friend of the victim. Phishing emails are usually designed to look as authentic as possible. One form of phishing is spear-phishing, which involves a targeted attack on, for example, a specific company and impersonation of a business partner.

Headless e-commerce technology – directions of development

Headless e-commerce – what is it?

The market for services related to sales via the Internet is constantly growing. During the pandemic and the related to it restrictions, the demand for remote sale of goods increased significantly. This also necessitated the rapid creation and development of online shops. Traditional Content Management Systems (CMS) tie all layers of the programme together. Headless e-commerce technology separates the layer visible to the user (front-end of the application) from the code dealing with logic and integration of server-side functions (back-end of the application) and the database containing information about the prices of the products offered in the shop, their images and descriptions. These layers are separated from each other, but have contact with each other through the Application Programming Interface (API). In this way, although externally the application looks homogeneous, it actually consists of three parts that interact with each other. This structure allows independence from the solution provider, as the vendor deals only with the front-end layer, visible to the customer, and does not have to interfere with the entire code.

Advantages and disadvantages of headless e-commerce




Online betting in Poland is legal as long as it is run by entities that meet the statutory criteria. Pursuant to Article 5(1b) of the amended Polish Gambling Act of 19 November 2009 (Journal of Laws of 2018, item 165), the organisation of gambling games over the Internet, with the exception of pari-mutuel betting and promotional lotteries, is covered by the State monopoly.

This means that online bookmakers can still legally operate with a whole range of payment methods and are not subject to a state monopoly.


On the territory of Poland, only bookmakers who have obtained a licence issued by the Polish Ministry of Finance and thus have complied with the laws in force in Poland may accept bookmaker bets.

Legal bookmakers in Poland must meet a number of requirements in order to conduct sports betting. As stated in the Polish Gambling Act, bookmakers may offer their services in Poland only if the Polish Minister of Finance grants them a licence to conduct such activities.
