6.1. Categories

6.1.1. data disclosure Exposure of data to third parties. Key point to consider is whether the disclosure is relevant and necessary.

6.1.2. data modification A modification attack is an attempt to modify information that an attacker is not authorized to modify.

6.1.3. data availability Describe products and services that continues to be available at a required level of performance in situations ranging from normal through "disastrous."

6.2. Activities

6.2.1. hacking hacking is the process of bypassing computer safeguards in order to gain access to them – which can either be good or bad –

6.2.2. cracking cracking specifically refers to hacking practice, but with criminal intent.

6.2.3. spoofing spoofing attack is when a malicious party impersonates another device or user on a network in order to launch attacks against network hosts, steal data, spread malware or bypass access controls

6.2.4. sniffing Sniffing involves capturing, decoding, inspecting and interpreting the information inside a network packet on a TCP/IP network. he purpose is to steal information, usually user IDs, passwords, network details, credit card numbers, etc. Generally referred to as a “passive” type of attack, wherein the attackers can be silent/invisible on the network. This makes it difficult to detect, and hence it is a dangerous type of attack.
