DNS Hijacking

DNS hijacking occurs when a hacker redirects all user web traffic, using a rogue DNS server, to a fake spoofed website at another IP address.

Users of a website experiencing a DNS hijacking attack are often unaware that they have arrived at a spoof of the site they intended to visit.

The unaware redirection often leads to the web user divulging either sensitive or personal information.
