Definition of Session Hijacking

Session Hijacking is any Security attack, carried out by an Intruder, which attempts to insert commands into an active Login Session. On wide-area TCP/IP networks, this is frequently attempted using IP Spoofing. On local TCP/IP networks, this might be attempted with the help of a Packet Sniffer.
