Posted on Sunday March 13, 2016 by Eric Potvin

IP spoofing is the creation of Internet Protocol (IP) packets with a forged source IP address, with the purpose of concealing the identity of the sender or impersonating another computing system.

To prevent IP Spoofing, edit the /etc/host.conf:

sudo vi /etc/host.conf

And add or update the following lines:

order bind,hosts
