Typosquatting definition in Cybersecurity

Typosquatting, also known as URL hijacking, is a malicious tactic where attackers register domain names that closely resemble legitimate, well-known domains to deceive users into visiting malicious sites, potentially leading to phishing attacks, malware infection, or data breaches.

How to Protect Your Network against Typosquatting

  1. Educate users on the importance of double-checking URLs before entering sensitive information.
  2. Use security solutions that include anti-phishing and web filtering capabilities to block access to malicious sites.
