Up One Level


Masquerading

 

Identifying yourself as someone else, i.e. purporting to be another (probably genuine) user for example, sending an e-mail to a client under someone else's name. E-mail systems usually do not allow the sender's 'From' field to be altered, but those that do thereby permit messages to be sent under a completely false name.
