Cyber Attack

Cyber attack is any type of offensive technique to exploit, damage, disrupt or illegally access any computer, system, technology-dependent enterprises (not sure what this means) and/or networks. Cyber attacks can compromise data by using malicious code to bypass securities and alter code, systems, and data.

Professional hackers, either working on their own or employed by the government or military service, can find computer systems with vulnerabilities lacking the appropriate security software. Once found, they can infect systems with malicious code and then remotely control the system or computer by sending commands to view content or to disrupt other computers.
