What is man in the middle attack
Man in the middle is an advanced variation of Phishing and Pharming attacks. In this particular attack you sign into the website and start working all the while entirely unaware that all the information exchanged between you and the website is passing to the attacker. The attacker can view any private information and can alter your transactions. For example, if you request to transfer a certain amount of money to a specific payee, the attacker can change the payee's identity and have the money transferred to a different account.
