Safety Tip

Double-check If you feel that an e-mail you get from a friend is somehow strange - if it is in a foreign language or if it just says odd things, double-check with the friend before opening any attachments.

Security Terms

Pharming

A type of social engineering attack in which a fraudulent website is used to trick a user into giving out their sensitive personal information, such as their banking or e-mail account details.

A pharming attack typically depends on "DNS poisoning", which involves seeding the user's hosts file or a DNS server with false information. In this case, the DNS poisoning tactic redirects users from a legitimate website to a copycat website under the attacker's control. Any information the user enters in the malicious website is then compromised.

A pharming attack may also be used in conjunction with a 'phishing' attempt. In this case, a misleading message leads the unsuspecting user to the malicious website.

Pharming is pronounced the same as "farming".
