Unlike XSS vulnerabilities, this is a type of vulnerability that is caused due to common DNS misconfigurations.
It’s not easy to exploit it.
The attacker needs to be on same machine as you are. If they are, they can open a network port over which, they can reroute HTTP traffic to your browser from local machine.
