Understanding the types of poisoning attacks

Poisoning attacks refer to when attackers intentionally injecting false data into a network or infrastructure. This allow the attackers to steal sensitive data or perform other malicious activities.
The different types of poisoning attacks.
  • Web cache poisoning: means adding notorious websites to the cache by making requests from an attacker-controlled system.
  • DNS cache poisoning: Domain Name System (DNS) converts human-readable websites to IP addresses that can be understood and processed by computers.The attacker aims at exploiting vulnerabilities to direct web traffic to fraudulent servers, instead of the legitimate ones.
  • ARP cache poisoning: this happen when an attacker modifies the Media Access Control (MAC) address to update the system’s Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) cache with false ARP request and response packets.
  • Model poisoning: This is a type of attack launched on artificial intelligence and machine learning systems.Attackers influence the training datasets used, to manipulate the results according to their needs.
