Today in this article i am going to discuss about DHCP SNOOPING attacks by hackers.Here in this article i will show you how DHCP SNOOPING Occurs and how to stop such attacks.But before you learn how to stop dhcp snooping attacks i will love to brief about DHCP SNOOPING ATTACK.

It is a type of  hacking attack in which ip address will be provided to client machine by any unkown DHCP Server or Unauthenticated DHCP machine.

The unknown DHCP server can be run by any hacker or any intruders(company employee).If it happens your machines in the network will have ip address provided by some unknown person and he/she can easily know the details of your client PC using this and this can turn in to a disaster.

The most frequent affect of DHCP SNOOPING is that your all machine say computers can’t communicate with each other,because few gets ip from original dhcp server and few from hackers server who is using a different network.
