SPOOFING Headache to IT world
The whole world is engaged to provide the complete security to information when it is in network. But the techniques somewhere fail to overcome on attacks. One of them is Spoofing. Spoofing is an active security attack in which one machine on the network masquerades as a different machine. As an active attack, it disrupts the normal flow of data and may involve injecting data into the communications link between other machines. This masquerade aims to fool other machines on the network into accepting the impostor as an original, either to lure the other machines into sending it data or to allow it to alter data.
