Scareware. It is a form of malicious software that uses social engineering to cause shock, anxiety or the perception of a threat in order to manipulate users into buying unwanted software. It is a part of a class of malicious software that includes rogue security software. Some forms of Spyware and Adware also use Scareware tactics. A frequent tactics used by criminals involves convincing users that a virus has infected their computer, than suggesting that they download (and pay for) fake antivirus software to remove it.
Security Principles As the rise in information sharing outlets gain momentum, so do the reports of the theft or loss of sensitive company and customer information and the theft of intellectual property. Security breaches happen nearly every day and according to Proofpoint Inc., a company that provides professional information security, more than a third of companies fall victim to the unauthorized exposure of information. Businesses not only suffer the loss of data when these attacks occur. Breaches could potentially disrupt the company’s ability to function and compromise their reputation. Dependence on information technology makes information assurance a key element to keeping businesses safe and there are several principles that should be
One example is spyware which collects information about how a user uses a software application and reports that information back to the software vendor. If the vendor does not alert the user to the fact that the software application does this, then it is spyware. Other spyware is annoying. Adware monitors a user's Internet use and occasionally displays pop-up advertisements while the user is browsing the Internet (the intent is to make the user believe that the pop-up messages are being produced by the web pages they are browsing, so that they do not realize they have adware on their computer). Many forms of spyware, however, are more malicious and can have serious effects on users and businesses.
Viruses tend to implant itself into a computer. Worse that it does is to steal credit card inputs, passwords and personal information. Hackers can than access these information and use it. Malicious software that hooks into the victim’s browser, and records all data submitted into Web site forms, including credit card information. Leads to authorize online charges.
Keywords Malicious Code, Feature Extraction, N-Gram, ARFF (Attribute Relation File Format), CFBE (Common Feature-based Extraction), FBFE (Frequency-based Feature Extraction). 1. INTRODUCTION Often, spyware is difficult to remove without detailed knowledge of how it works or by taking drastic measures such as wiping the system clean and starting over. In many cases, verifying the integrity of the system requires the operating system, patches, and applications to be reinstalled. These difficulties, combined with the efforts necessary to recover user data, can take a lot of time.
The sixth attack that can damage the network is viruses; this attack is well known around the world as it can infect the network very fast, by using the hardware and even using the network connection. How the virus can damage the network is by spreading itself by duplicating itself so there is no more storage left on the network. Also the virus is used to damage the network by trying to find a pattern so it can find important information like password and usernames. The last two attacks that can damage the network in different ways is Trojans and worms, I will start off with Trojans how Trojans inter the network is when a person downloads free software or programs to the system and they is a Trojan with them, this is why it is very hard for anti-virus software to find and damage the Trojans. The Trojans attacks the network by modifying blocking and even delete data.
Ransom note also contain countdown times so that end your get more threaten and act fast for payment. Along with ransom note it send contact details and all other information that user need to pay and warning message that they will destroy files if not paid in given period of time. GPAA Ransomware make PC user believe that there is no other way to decrypt their files so, paying ransomware is only way. While we highly suggest you not to pay those cyber criminals because they are not trustworthy. Once you pay them they can demand even more and threaten you by sending lower degree virus as your files and system is under GPAA Ransomware control.

5.1 Web security application testing has covered areas wherein the application loopholes and configuration errors are prevented and corrected. Web application testing provides advice on data that could have been exposed due to past errors thereby testing for vulnerabilities. It reduces the risk of attack. Web testing also provides us with debug and prevention of backdoor options. We need to protect our system and applications from the instrusions present.
Without it, there is no way to know a system has gone down until users start complaining. With it, the system/network administrator can be aware of the issue the instant it happens. Documentation is also extremely important in any environment. Documentation is an Administrator’s lifeline if a system breaks and they either need to recreate it or repair it. 2.
If the request is valid then it is further checked for other attacks, otherwise it is blocked and stored in the log with the attack type that is found in that request. In HTTP request smuggling attack, a malicious request contains multiple start lines that are not allowed in one HTTP request (violation of RFC 2616). When the hacker tries to assign multiple start lines to one request, it will be detected by the system analyzer and reported as an HTTP request smuggling attack. A buffer overflow is the computing equivalent of trying to pour two liters of water into a one-liter pitcher, some water is going to spill out and make a mess. A buffer (or array or string) is a space in which data can be held.
