  • It's always a game of cat-and-mouse!

  • The question of how hackers and malware exploit devices, networks, and software is an important one. If we're going to stop hackers and malware we have to figure out how they break in and implement mitigations against their "root exploit" methods. I've been tracking their methods for over 22 years. Here's the inclusive categories that cover every method I can think of for a hacker or malware program to break into something:

    Social Engineering
    Programming Bug (patch available or not available)
    Authentication Attack
    Malicious Instructions/Scripting
    Data Malformation
    Human Error/Misconfiguration
    Eavesdropping/MitM
    Side Channel/Information Leak
    Brute Force/Computational
    Network Traffic Malformation
    Insider Attack
    3rd Party Reliance Issue (supply chain/vendor/partner/etc.)
    Physical Attack
