Violation Type:ISP Hijacking
An ISP hijacks connections or connectionless traffic, performing a man-in-the-middle attack.
This will usually only be performed on non-SSL connections, but may increasingly occur on SSL connections where the ISP is a corporation and the user is an employee.
In some cases the hijacking performed by an ISP may appear to be with good intent. For example, an ISP has been legally compelled to block a website, and wishes to inform people who attempt to visit the website of this. It does this by hijacking attempted connections to the website by whatever means. However, such good intentions do not constitute a valid excuse as they still constitute hijacking, with all the associated concerns.
This may be done by DNS hijacking or outright hijacking of TCP connections. A violation occurs regardless of the means used.
