DNS Spoofing

DNS spoofing is a technique in which an attacker alters a victim’s IP address mappings in an effort to direct the victim machine’s traffic to an address the attacker specifies. This is a fairly simple explanation, but the concept and intent are the same in all variations of this technique. Later, in the section “Network Session Hijacking,” you’ll see how DNS spoofing also applies to hijacking vulnerable web applications.
