Active Attack

What is an Active Attack?

An active attack is an ongoing attack with malicious intent on a network resource, via any vector. Active attacks may be either directed against the network perimeter or – if the attacker has bypassed existing security solutions – may be within the network itself. Active attacks may be overt or covert.

Active attacks within the network can go on for months and even years. During these attacks, the attacker operates freely inside a breached network, but has not yet caused measurable damage or exfiltrated valuable information.
