Intercepting and Redirecting Genuine Web
Man-it-the-Middle attack uses proxy servers, DNS poisoning and local Hosts file tampering to intercept and redirect end user traffic to fake sites. Fraudsters use MitM tactics to capture login credentials and other sensitive data and tamper with transactions in real-time. MitM attacks can be carried out through malware on the victim’s device or by compromising network resources.
MitM attack protection ensures that cybercriminals have not compromised the network through DNS poisoning or proxy. And, that malware on the endpoint is not redirecting or intercepting traffic on the end user device.
