IP Hijacking Case Studies
IP Hijacking is a serious cyber threat when hackers reroute Internet traffic to their own sites where equipment is installed which helps them in gaining illegal access to traffic and allowing copying, eavesdropping, Man-In-The-Middle attacks and other malicious manipulation of the information, before returning it to the intended recipient. Successful access to Internet traffic also benefits hackers in their efforts to overcome measures put up to prevent penetration into target organizations. The consequences can be seriously damaging, especially since the victims are unaware it is happening.
Attacks on internet traffic are difficult to detect, since damaging intervention occur in extremely short time frames. Only constant monitoring of all your traffic, accurate detection of suspicious routing selections, discovering unexplained fluctuations in delay times and linking abnormal performance to possible hacking behavior can identify all types of hacking attacks on your internet traffic, regardless if they are short term, long term or intermittent.
