DNS based attack is not something the average Internet surfer would know about but this can be a serious online threat. To learn about DNS hijacking or redirecting you first need to understand what DNS is and what it does

How DNS works

DNS "Domain Name System" functions as an interpreter between humans, (who communicate with words) And computers (who communicate with numbers).
