A DDoS attack is a malicious attempt to flood a service, server or network with internet traffic and so disrupt the normal traffic. The goal is to exhaust the organizations’ resources and can cause outages and monetary loss. It is vital to include DDoS mitigation as part of your incident response plan.
User accounts and network tools are gateways to critical systems and data. Abusing these elements can lead to the loss of sensitive data, business intelligence and downtime of systems and business-essential applications. Incidents of this nature occur where user privileges and user accounts are either used incorrectly or fraudulently. The latter can be through malicious intent, accidental or willful ignorance of policies.
Privilege escalation entails an attack that involves gaining unlawful access to elevated rights, or privileges, beyond what a user is entitled to. This allows attackers to gain access to sensitive data, install malware and launch other cyber attacks.
Root access is authorization to execute any command and access any resource on a device. Should an attacker gain unauthorized root access they not only have access to sensitive data, but can install malware and launch other cyber attacks.
Compromised credentials is one of the top attack vectors behind breaches. It is a common threat in a network system and can result in loss of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information technology assets.
