Roles Of Cyber Warrior In Network Security Threats
A cyber-warrior is a person who engages in cyberwarfare, whether for personal reasons or out of patriotic or religious belief. Cyberwarfare may be pursued either to defend computer and information systems or to attack them. Cyber-warriors come in different forms, depending on their roles, but all deal with information security in one form or another.
Cyber-warriors wage war using information technology. They may attack computers or information systems through hacking or other related strategies, or defend them from their counterparts. Cyber-warriors also may find better ways to secure a system by finding vulnerabilities through hacking and other means and closing those vulnerabilities before other hackers find and exploit them.
Given this, the term cyber-warrior has different meanings depending on the context in which it is used; the term may refer to someone with malicious intent (the attacker) or a professional who is working to defend against such attackers. The latter context is an emerging career field, similar to ethical hacking.
- They always take advantage of vulnerabilities in common OS and Applications.
- Facts about Cyber Warriors
They adopt the use of Espionage, extortion and embarrassment.
- They are well funded by governments because they are representing government interests.
- They make use of existing exploit methods and they are also capable of developing new ones.
- They always look for how to create a “Zero-Day”. Zero-day happens when you discover new vulnerability or attack path and you never knew how to fix it.
- This always gives Cyber warriors enough time to launch more attacks until developers can find a solution to the attack created.
- Once these attacks are discovered, the software vendor will issue a patch update to correct it. That is why once a particular attack method is used, it might not be possible to use it again.
