What is web spoofing l.jpg

What is Web Spoofing

  • Pretending to be a legitimate site

  • Attacker creates convincing but false copy of the site

  • Stealing personal information such as login ID, password, credit card, bank account, and much more. aka Phishing attack

  • False Web looks and feels like the real one

  • Attacker controls the false web by surveillance

  • Modifying integrity of the data from the victims

How the attack works l.jpg

How the attack works

Explain demo…

Different types of web spoofing l.jpg

Different types of Web Spoofing

  • DNS server spoofing attack

    • One of the most complex types of attack

    • Alter a domain name to point to different IP address

    • Redirect to a different server hosting a spoofed site

Different types of web spoofing7 l.jpg

Different types of Web Spoofing

  • Content theft

    • A copy of a site can be created from the original by saving all the publicly accessible pages, images, and scripts from a site to another server. (Miguel’s Demo)

    • Can be done automated by using programs called “spiders”

Different types of web spoofing8 l.jpg

Different types of Web Spoofing

  • Subdomain Spoofing

    • Normal subdomain: http://subdomain.domain.com

    • Tricking internet user that they are on the correct URL

    • Make the URL long enough so that the user cannot see the entire URL

  • And more…

    • IP Address as URL, Email with HTML attached, Frameless Pop-up, and more…

How to detect a spoofed webpage l.jpg

How to detect a spoofed webpage

  • URL (this is the easiest way to detect the attack!)

    • Triple check the spelling of the URL

    • Look for small differences such as a hyphen (-) or an underscore (e.g. suntrust.com vs. sun-trust.com)

  • Mouse over message (careful: this can be spoofed too!)

  • Beware of pages that use server scripting such as php these tools make it easy to obtain your information.

  • Beware of javascripting as well.

  • Beware of longer than average load times.

Signs that you may have been a victim l.jpg

Signs that you may have been a victim

  • If an unexpected error occurs, you may be a victim of web spoofing (sorry) (This relates to Dr. Burmester's example of the fake ATM's)

  • If you have to click submit buttons repeatedly. (class example)

  • If you have to enter your password repeatedly (class example)

  • If there is any redirection to other webpages.

Stats of web spoofing l.jpg

Stats of Web Spoofing

  • Web spoofing is increasing at a rapid pace

    • According to a study by Gartner Research

      • Two million users gave such information to spoofed web sites.

      • About $1.2 billion direct losses to U.S. Bank and credit card issuers in 2003

      • And about $400 million to $1 billion losses from the victims

    • Archives of reported scams
