An illegal change to a DNS server that directs a URL to a different Web site. In some cases, the new Web site's URL may have one different letter in the name that might go unnoticed. The bogus Web site might offer similar and/or competing products for sale, or it may be a vehicle to publicly smear the reputation of the intended Web site. See DNSSec, DNS cache poisoning and pharming.
