ethical hacking and countermeasures v8
Question No. 1
An Attacker creates a zuckerjournals.com website by copying and mirroring HACKERJOURNALS.COM site to spread the news that Hollywood actor Jason Jenkins died in acar accident. The attacker then submits his fake site for indexing in major search engines. Whenusers search for "Jason Jenkins", attacker's fake site shows up and dupes victims by the fake news.
This is another great example that some people do not know what URL's are. Real website:
Fake website: http://www.zuckerjournals.com
The website is clearly not WWW.HACKERJOURNALS.COM. It is obvious for many, but unfortunately some people still do not know what an URL is. It's the address that you enter into the address bar at the top your browser and this is clearly not legit site, its www.zuckerjournals.com
How would you verify if a website is authentic or not?
