How do people spoof your name and IP address?
I was reading a tutorial that has mentioned a few times about intruders that may try to spoof your name and/or IP address...how do they do that?
I imagine they could spoof your name by modifying the etc/hosts file of everybody that tries to access your site? Haha, is that what they actually do? So I guess my question still stands about how they spoof a name.
And how in the world do they spoof an IP address? This one just blows my mind! With my limited knowledge on these matters, how do they actually spoof an IP address? I thought an IP address was not spoofable, though the name that points to it very well might be.
Thanks a lot, any insight on these questions would be awesome!
