Pharming is the criminal process of attempting to acquire sensitive information such as usernames, passwords and credit card details by redirecting the victim's traffic to another website. These attacks are practically impossible to detect, and made are becoming more prevalent as wireless networks become abundant.
Pharming is a dangerous attack that is difficult to detect. It includes MITM (Man in the Middle); DNS poisoning and other techniques that reroute web traffic in order to collect sensitive information. It is becoming increasingly prevalent, affecting a growing number of organizations worldwide.
By implementing the VERSAFE Anti-Pharming software components, organizations can detect different types of Pharming attacks, identify servers that execute MITM attacks and even identify the users targeted by these attacks, all in real time. The use of these protective components enables a line of actions that the organization can take, up to the prevention of a user’s connection from a public network over which a Pharming attack is carried out.
The attacker is able to use different methods of action like utilizing the weaknesses in DNS services, editing the victim's Host file, or any other type of MITM (Man In The Middle) attacks.
Due to the fact that security personnel are unaware of these actions in real time and do not have the capacity to discover these attacks online, research and security groups agree that these attacks will be the next security threat to online banking.
