Pharming is a method of manipulating those who use the Internet by redirecting them to false Web sites. DNS servers are used to translate a domain name into an IP address and then redirects the suer to the Web site. Once this has happened the information will be soted on the users DNS cache if they ever revisit the site. Pharming poisons the information stored on a users DNS cache and is then able to redirect the user to which ever site the hacker has designated.
