Man in the Middle attacks are more likely, and more feasible, than you think.
Everyday millions of people are using mobile phones and iPads in public places and exposing their data to everyone around them. From accessing bank accounts, to Facebook passwords, to email to payment sites…anything that can be accessed in a browser can be accessed by a middle party.
Sound scary? We know.
Man in the Middle attacks happen when an intercepting device scans the area for unencrypted and vulnerable data. These devices are not from benign sources, but are held by criminals in our communities. While someone is sitting inside a cafe and checking their car payment, someone else can be sitting in the parking lot and retrieve every single piece of data out of the air.
According to the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, the top three categories were:
“The most common types of hacking action used were the use of stolen login credentials, exploiting backdoors, and Man in the Middle attacks.”
