Cyber Threats

3 Aanko CyberRiskThe information infrastructure has become a critical part of the backbone of our economy. Users should be able to rely on the availability of information services and have the confidence that their communications and data are safe from unauthorized access or modification. The advent of electronic commerce and the full realization of Information Society depend on security of the Internet, the corporate network and information database. Attacks against information systems constitute a threat to the achievement of commerce and are a direct source of intelligence gathering by terrorists, criminals and others who wish to do harm.

Cyberthreats come in many forms and processes. These include:

  • Site-paralyzing and visible (sustained attack, usually TCP/IP based, as e.g. DDOS, SYN-flood)
  • Site-disrupting and invisible (only visible to client, e.g. malicious JavaScript change)
  • Network disrupting and visible (traffic-related, effects visible from target and from client))
  • Network disrupting and invisible (e.g.  ARP cache poisoning, DNS attacks, zombie router)
  • Penetrating attack/sleeper (hostile agent in, triggered by a non time-related event)
  • Penetrating attack/time-related (entering host site, operating at a specific time)
  • Infection only (targets are connecting clients)
  • Polymorphic/multiple payload (hostile agent mutates and/or vectors other malicious agents)
