What is Pharming

The term “pharming” is a neologism based on the words “farming” and “phishing”. Both Phishing and Pharming attacks seek to obtain access credentials, such as user names and passwords But while Phishing is a type of social-engineering attack, Pharming targets the provider infrastructure and can be detected and prevented.

Pharming attacks are among the most virulent, and devastating, security breaches a company can suffer because end-users are unaware of the compromise. For this reason Pharming has become of major concern to businesses hosting ecommerce and online banking websites, leading the FDIC to issue guidance on this topic.

How it Works

Pharming Shield is managed via a web-based portal. The portal provides the management, alert and reporting interface for the Pharming Shield service. Pharming Shield agents are responsible for the actual monitoring, they reside at Internet Service Providers across the internet.
