Types of IP spoofing

The following are the three most typical types of IP spoofing attacks:


Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks


Hackers use faked IP addresses to flood computer servers with data packets in a DDoS attack. This allows them to hide their identify while slowing or crashing a website or network with a high volume of internet traffic.


Masking botnet devices


By concealing botnets, IP spoofing can be used to gain access to machines. A botnet is a collection of computers controlled by a single hacker. A dedicated bot runs on each machine, carrying out harmful actions on behalf of the attacker. Because each bot in the network has a counterfeit IP address, the attacker can hide the botnet, making the bad actor difficult to track. This can make an attack last longer in order to maximize the payout.


Man-in-the-middle attacks


Another kind of malicious IP spoofing employs a'man-in-the-middle' attack to disrupt communication between two systems, change packets, and transmit them without the original sender or receiver being aware. Attackers can follow any part of communication if they fake an IP address and get access to personal communication accounts. It's possible to steal data, redirect people to phony websites, and more from there. Hackers amass a plethora of confidential information over time that they may use or sell, making man-in-the-middle attacks more profitable than others.
