What Are Adversary-In-The-Middle Attacks?

Phishing involves the attacker sending a fraudulent email or message to the user that appears to be from a legitimate source. The message often contains a link to a fake website that looks like the target website, where the user is prompted to enter their login credentials.

If the user falls for the phishing attempt and enters their credentials on the fake site, the attacker can use EvilNginx to intercept their traffic and steal their session cookie. With this cookie, the attacker can then bypass Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and access the user's account without needing to enter a second factor.

Protecting Against Adversary-In-The-Middle Attacks

To protect against these attacks, it's important to educate employees on how to identify phishing attempts and avoid clicking on suspicious links. Companies should also implement robust security protocols such as MFA, strong password policies, and regular security assessments to identify potential vulnerabilities.
