The need to protect yourself from evil domain name system (DNS) servers

A popular way for cyber criminals to execute their attacks on internet users is to manipulate an individual's online behaviour in that they change their internet settings to direct them to domain name system (DNS) servers that they have been created in order to pretend to be something that they aren't to receive payments or obtain confidential personal data. DNS servers are integral to the operation of the internet in that they make it possible for computers and other devices to find each other. The attackers use these evil DNS servers to make money by setting up rogue servers that will direct individuals to websites that contain fraudulent advertising, spread malware or even trick them into revealing personal information such as bank account passwords.
