Understanding Man-In-The-Middle Attacks – DNS Spoofing

DNS spoofing is a MITM technique used to supply false DNS information to a host so that when they attempt to browse, for example, http://www.bankofamerica.com at the IP address XXX.XX.XX.XX they are actually sent to a fake http://www.bankofamerica.com residing at IP address YYY.YY.YY.YY which an attacker has created in order to steal online banking credentials and account information from unsuspecting users.

This is actually done quite easily and here you will see how it works, how it is done, and how to defend against it.
