Understanding MITBOne of the newest forms of malware, a man-in-the-browser attack typically takes the form of a trusted browser extension. From the user's point of view, the Web transaction is taking place normally, complete with expected interactions with the server.
As such, it is nearly impossible for a user to identify a man-in-the-browser attack in progress. It can modify Web sessions at will, and initiate fraudulent transactions.
