Man-in-the-Middle Attack: It is an attack where the attacker secretly relays and possibly alters the communications between two parties who believe they are directly communicating with each other.
IP Spoofing: IP spoofing is the creation of Internet Protocol (IP) packets which have a modified source address in order to either hide the identity of the sender, to impersonate another computer system, or both.

Phishing is a type of attack on computer device where the attacker tries to find the sensitive information of users in a fraud manner through electronic communication by intending to be from a related trusted organization in an automated manner.

IP Sniffing The stealing of network addresses by reading the packets. Harmful data is then sent stamped with internal trusted addresses.

A fully connected network topology is a topology in which there is a direct link between all pairs of nodes. Given a fully connected network with $n$ nodes, the number of direct links as a function of $n$ can be expressed as $\frac{n(n+1)}{2}$ $\frac{(n+1)}{2}$ $\frac{n}{2}$ $\frac{n(n-1)}{2}$
