The Ultimate Guide to DNS Poisoning Attacks
DNS poisoning, also known as cache poisoning, uses security-gaps in DNS protocols to divert internet traffic away from original websites to malicious ones. Once on the fraudulent website, users are asked to sign into the accounts (which they believe are theirs), providing the attackers a chance to steal sensitive information such as access credentials and user profile data.
Through DNS poison attacks, the assailants install viruses or worms onto the user’s computer, paving the way for the cyber-attacker to have long-term access to personal information.
