To us, Web sites go by friendly, easy to remember names, like www.JustAskGemalto.com. In reality, Web sites have Internet addresses made up of numbers, like 22.214.171.124. Software or special purpose Domain Name Servers (DNS) translate the friendly name to the actual address. An Internet address redirect attack works by putting malware in your PC or the server that sends you to a fraudster’s site instead of the real one, where a man-in-the-middle, phishing or other attack can take place.
