Therefore, at the level of the ACT, the following hacks:

– listening to the local network segment (within the same LAN segment, all the connected computer can receive messages addressed to other computers on the segment, and therefore, if the computer is connected to some hacker LAN segment, then it is available all the information exchange between computers in this segment);

– interception of communications on the router (if a hacker has privileged access to the network router, it is able to intercept all messages passing through the router, and while total interception is impossible due to the large volume, extremely attractive to hackers is selectively intercepting messages containing passwords users and their e-mail); (more…)
