Pharming is derived from the words “farming” and phishing” and is a cyberattack intended to redirect a website’s traffic to another, fake site through the installation of malware.

Pharming occurs when the malware either changes the hosts’ file on a victim’s computer, or web server or by exploiting a vulnerability in DNS server software.
