IP Spoofing


IP spoofing is a cyberattack in which the attacker falsifies the content in the Source IP header, most often with randomized numbers, to masquerade as a legitimate entity. IP spoofing is the most common form of spoofing and is a common technique employed by hackers in DDoS malware kits and attack scripts. Hackers employ IP spoofing to hide their identity, impersonate another computer system, or both.
