Network attacks are techniques used by threat actors to achieve goals in their target infrastructure. Learn how these attacks work and what you can do to protect against them.
Remote Code Execution (RCE)
What are RCE Attacks and Vulnerabilities? See attack examples, history of attacks, and effective methods to protect enterprise organizations.
Brute Force Attack
A brute force attack is a trial-and-error attack method to guess a password, encryption key, or hidden webpage. See brute force attack examples.
Learn how to detect C2 beaconing. C2 beaconing is a method of command and control communication between malware-infected hosts (like those that make up botnets) and the controlling server.
Learn about cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks and the top three ways to prevent an attack. See risk factors and examples.
Cryptomining malware, or 'cryptojacking,' is a malware attack that co-opts the target's computing resources in order to mine cryptocurrencies like bitcoin.
A DCSync attack uses commands in MS-DRSR to pretend to be a domain controller (DC) in order to get user credentials. Learn more and see examples of attacks.
DNS Tunneling Attack
DNS tunneling routes DNS requests to the attacker's server, providing attackers a covert command and control channel. Learn more and see DNS tunneling examples.
Denial of Service Attack
Denial of service (DoS) & distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks overload a machine or network to make it unavailable. Learn how to respond to an attack.
HTTP Request Smuggling
HTTP request smuggling attack takes advantage of inconsistencies in how servers process requests from multiple senders. Learn more and see examples.
What is Malware Obfuscation? See techniques, history of attacks, and effective detection methods.
Port Scan Attack
Port scanning attackers scope out their target environment by sending packets to specific ports on a host and using the responses to find vulnerabilities.
Ransomware is a type of malicious software which encrypts files, making them inaccessible until a ransom is paid. Learn more and see examples.
Remote Services Exploitation
Attacks like RDP exploitation hijack remote access tools to access a network's internal systems. Learn more and see examples.
SQL Injection (SQLi) Attack
By injecting an SQL command into a data entry field, attackers communicate directly with your database. Learn more and see examples such as RDP exploitation.
