Requesting a node’s peers list


When joining the bitcoin network, you request a list of peers that a node has so that you are able to connect to those peers if you wanted to, in order to be better connected. Is there any way that when requesting the peers list of a node, the node could provide a fake peers list with a number of ‘bad’ nodes?
