IP Spoofing is when a hacker changes an original IP address for the purpose of hiding the true source IP address. It can be used to attack individual users, servers, and applications.
IP spoofing is a cyber-attack used by hackers to access computers. Once they have gained entry, the attacker can access stored sensitive data and utilise the computer system for malicious use, such as incorporating it into a botnet for Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
Hackers use random spoofed source IP addresses in order to conceal their own identity and make the attack harder to block. It then looks like it is originating from many sources. they use spoofed IPs to build enormous botnets and run DDoS attacks.
These hackers can spoof a trusted IP and get into your computer network. Once they are in the network they can freely delve into what’s inside.
