We’ll now look at the different types of poisoning attacks.
Web cache poisoning
Caching is a common term that refers to storing commonly requested data to save time and minimize network traffic.
DNS cache poisoning
This attack aims at exploiting vulnerabilities to direct web traffic to fraudulent servers, instead of the legitimate ones.
ARP cache poisoning
When an attacker modifies the Media Access Control (MAC) address to update the system’s ARP cache with false ARP request and response packets, the attack is called ARP poisoning.
This is a type of attack launched on artificial intelligence and machine learning systems.
