Common Cybersecurity Attacks Affecting Businesses Today

Here’s a simplified explanation of the cyberattack types that are active in 2024 and that are actively being attempted on Wollongong businesses.

Malware Attack

Malware is harmful software like viruses, worms, spyware, ransomware, adware, and trojans. It often disguises as legitimate software or spreads through suspicious links and email attachments. It can steal, block, or display unwanted ads on your system.

Phishing Attack

In a phishing attack, attackers pretend to be trustworthy contacts and send fake emails. Victims might click on harmful links or attachments in these emails, leading to theft of personal information or malware installation.

Password Attack

Hackers use various tools to guess or crack passwords. Methods include brute force (trying all possible combinations), dictionary attacks (using common password lists), and keylogger attacks (recording keystrokes).

Man-in-the-Middle Attack

This is an eavesdropping attack where the hacker intercepts and potentially alters the communication between two parties, like between a client and a server.

SQL Injection Attack

Hackers exploit vulnerabilities in a database-driven website by inserting malicious SQL code, usually through a website’s input fields, to access or manipulate the database.

Denial-of-Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) Attack

These attacks flood a system, server, or network with overwhelming traffic, causing it to slow down or shut down, denying service to legitimate users.

Spoofing

Attackers disguise themselves as a trustworthy entity, like spoofing an email or network address, to steal sensitive information or perform harmful actions.

Ransomware

This type of malware encrypts the victim’s data and demands payment, usually in cryptocurrency, for its release.

AST Technologies can assist with anticipating and preventing all of these and many more cyber security risks and potential attacks.
