In today’s digital landscape, ensuring the security of our online communications and transactions has become more crucial than ever.

Unfortunately, cybercriminals continue to evolve, and one technique they employ to compromise the integrity and confidentiality of digital data is the Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attack.

Understanding the Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) Attack:

A MitM attack is a technique wherein an attacker secretly intercepts and relays communications between two parties without their knowledge.

By placing themselves between the sender and recipient, the attacker gains unauthorized access to sensitive information such as passwords, financial data, or personal details.

How Do MitM Attacks Work?

MitM attacks take advantage of security vulnerabilities, usually occurring when communication takes place via unsecured networks or compromised devices.

The attacker eavesdrops on the communication, intercepts messages, and can manipulate or alter the content in real-time, all while masquerading as the trusted recipient to both parties involved.
