What is an APT attack?

An APT is a common cyberattack which is meticulously planned against specific organisations or targets in multiple directions.  This penetration attack starts by collecting intelligence, in which the attacker comes to grips with the target’s information system structure, and then lurk and monitor the target in order to steal the target’s confidential information step by step.

Common ways of attack:

Phishing websites

set up a fraudulent website with the same style as the genuine website and install a malware into the fraudulent website to obtain the login information of the targets or members of the target organisation

Phishing emails

send emails with attachments of hidden malicious programs or fraudulent website links to infect the target computer network

Watering hole attacks

hackers evade the defense mechanism of the target computer network, speculate on the websites frequently visited by the target or members of the target organisation, and plant malicious programs therein to ambush the target
