⚠️ INFOGRAPHIC ALERT: Man-in-the-Middle Attack

A Man-in-the-Middle (MitM) attack occurs when a cybercriminal secretly intercepts and possibly alters the communication between two parties who believe they are directly communicating with each other. In this scenario, the attacker can steal sensitive information, inject malicious content, or spy on the ongoing data exchange. Commonly, MitM attacks exploit unsecured or poorly secured Wi-Fi networks to intercept data, but they can also occur through compromised software or phishing tactics. Protecting against MitM attacks involves using encrypted connections (like HTTPS), employing VPN services for secure communications, and being cautious on public Wi-Fi networks.
