What is a Man In The Middle Attack? Eavesdropping at its best.
MitM attacks are the type of attacks where the attacker eavesdrop between two consequently communicating hosts by putting himself in between the point of data transmission. This allows the attacker to “Listen” to what the hosts are communicating and “Read” them. The Attacker here could gather the data, alter it and send the manipulated data to the receiver and vice versa.
