To protect against stolen authentication, use strong authentication protocols and store tokens securely.

Man in the Middle (MITM) Attacks

A MITM attack occurs when a hacker intercepts data between two parties without either party’s knowledge. This is often done by exploiting vulnerabilities in an API or its implementation to gain access to information that should be private. For example, if a company uses HTTP instead of HTTPS for their API, hackers can exploit this vulnerability to view sensitive data being transmitted over the network. Another common way hackers will try to steal your data is through DNS spoofing attacks , where they alter your domain name server requests so you are directed elsewhere than intended
