Techno Vandalism

 

Techno Vandalism is a term used to describe a hacker or cracker who breaks into a computer system with the sole intent of defacing and or destroying its contents. Techno Vandals can deploy 'sniffers' on the Internet to locate soft (insecure) targets and then execute a range of commands using a variety of protocols towards a range of ports. If this sounds complex - it is! The best weapon against such attacks is a firewall which will hide and disguise your organisation's presence on the Internet.
