Cyber Attack

A cyber-attack is considered to be any type of offensive action used by an individual or an organized group that targets computer networks, information systems or a large IT infrastructure by using various means to deploy malicious code for the purpose of stealing, altering or taking any advantage from this type of action. A cyber-attack can appear under different names, from cyber-campaign, and cyber-warfare to cyber-terrorism or online attack. In recent years the software deployed in the online attacks seems to have become more and more sophisticated and the law enforcement agencies around the world have a hard time trying to keep up with this global menace.
