Thread: API hooking vs MiTM attacks

    API hooking vs MiTM attacks

    Is it accurate to say a MiTM is a network based attack where data is redirected. And API hooking is basically a host based MiTM where code is redirected?

    Yes, just keep in mind that unlike MiTM attacks which if successful demonstrate a security vulnerability (or at the very least a privacy violation), the ability to perform API hooking does not inherently open any security vulnerabilities.

    That's another important difference, thanks!
