Potential Threats

IP Spoofing

IP Spoofing is when people try to unlawfully access a cumputer or information system, like a server, using an IP address of a trusted host.

Non-Blind Spoofing

Non-blind spoofing is simular to IP Spoofing but it requires both the attacker (hacker) and the victim to be on the exact same subnet.

Blind Spoofing

Blind spoofing is a type of sophisticated IP spoofing attack whereby the attacker needs to sample the sequence numbers because the sequence number and the acknowledgment numbers are unreachable. To do so, the attacker will need to send many packets to the target computer and attempt to sample sequence numbers.

“Man in the Middle” attack

A man in the middle attack (also called “MITM attack”) is a term used to refer to both blind spoofing and non-blind spoofing attacks. A man in the middle attack occurs when a malicious party intercepts a communication between 2 legitimate parties. By doing so, the intruder will be able to view, modify, or delete information flowing between the 2 parties without being noticed by the sender or the receiver.


Phishing is term used in the world of information security; it refers to a fraudulent attempt to steal a user’s personal information (such as usernames, passwords, date of birth, credit card numbers, bank account logins and passwords, etc.). The main purpose of phishing is to steal money form users, whether from their emails, phone calls, or websites logins (such as internet banking logins).
