The Different Forms of Cybersecurity Threats

  • Denial-of-service (DoS) Attacks 

    Hackers flood a network with requests to exhaust bandwidth. In many cases, DoS attacks are meant to be more of a nuisance than anything else.
  • Man-in-the-middle (MitM) Attack 

    This attack happens when hackers insert themselves into a two-party communication. Once they’re in, they can steal data.
  • Phishing Attacks 

    Phishing uses fake emails and text messages to get people to give hackers access to private information. It is one of the most regular attacks, especially against the general public.
  • Malware

    This attack method is broken down into spyware, ransomware, worms, and viruses. Emails or downloads usually deliver these attacks from suspicious sites.
  • SQL Injection Attack

    Hackers insert malicious code onto an SQL-using server, usually via a vulnerable website search box. Once carried out successfully, the attack lets the hacker see information otherwise kept off-limits.
  • Password Attack 

    Just what it sounds like. Hackers try to crack a password, usually a poorly chosen one and gain network entry.
