Viruses, malware, ransomware, trojans, phishing and a lot more make a never-ending list of cyber threats.
One of the most prevalent cyber threats out there that often gets overlooked is manipulator-in-the-middle (previously referred to as ‘man-in-the-middle’) attack. This cyber-attack questions the integrity and confidentiality of communication between two parties.
Attackers could use the latest MITM attacks and tactics to steal personal or confidential data.
Some of the techniques used to carry out MITM attacks include:
- Rogue Access Point
- Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) Spoofing
- Domain Name System (DNS) Spoofing
- Email Hijacking
- Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) Redirection
- Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Spoofing
- SSL Stripping
And it is rarely possible to recognize whether a Man-in-the-Middle attack has occurred or not. But, MITM attacks can be avoided by following some best practices.
This blog post covers the types and techniques of manipulator-in-the-middle attacks and offers some suggestions to stay safe from MITM attacks.
