Exploiting well known flaws in DNS services and the way in which hostnames are resolved to IP addresses, Phishers have upped the ante in the cyberwar for control of a customer's online identity for financial gain. A grouping of attack vectors now referred to as "Pharming", affects the fundamental way in which a customer's computer locates and connects to an organizations online offering. This paper, extending the original material of "The Phishing Guide", examines in depth the workings of the name services of which Internet-based customers are dependent upon, and how they can be exploited by Pharmers to conduct identity theft and financial fraud on a massive scale.
