What is man in the browser attack
"Man in the Browser" is malware that resides inside your browser in the form of an add-on (e.g. toolbar, BHO, browser plug-in). This malware controls everything that happens inside your browser. It is capable of reading sensitive information such as your sign-in credentials and passing them to the attacker. It can also generate transactions on your behalf, such as transferring money from your account to the attacker's account.
