The domain name system, or DNS, is an index of the entire internet. When you type a website into your web browser, DNS servers convert this into an internet protocol (IP) address. This allows your computer to quickly find and access the appropriate site. Many DNS servers are provided by internet service providers (ISPs). DNS attacks occur when viruses or malware are used to change the DNS server of a website to a different IP address. This may then show a broken link, or a page of the malicious party’s choosing.
