The aim of an SSL Stripping attack is always to kill secure communication without the victim realizing. It’s all about data collection and manipulation. SSL Stripping allows attackers to downgrade your connection from a secure HTTPS to an insecure HTTP. This in turn, leaves you vulnerable to spying and data manipulation. It is somewhat similar to wiretapping, just a little more technical. However, both wiretapping and SSL Stripping have a ‘man-in-the-middle’ - the person who does the eavesdropping.

That’s how SSL Stripping tricks users into believing their connection is secure and their data encrypted, but the connection is actually insecure and the data is sent in plain text, because the encryption would have [...]
