Stop Pharming Attacks with Two-factor Authentication

Stop pharming attacks with two-factor authentication from SAASPASS. Pharming is large-scale phishing. Instead of baiting individual victims, pharming gathers account information by targeting mass networks with malware or cache poisoning.

Because they target networks, these attackers are of particular concern to businesses. An attacker can breach an entire network via a single computer and easily implement ‘DNS Cache Poisoning’.

While a well-functioning DNS (Domain Name System) server properly directs internet names toward genuine IP addresses, a ‘poisoned’ server intercepts to redirect victims to illegitimate sites and glean personal account information. SAASPASS substitutes usernames and passwords with unique, encrypted barcodes, and hackers cannot glean account information from any central repository.
